Acknowledgments


EWG wishes to express our profound gratitude to Elaine Ross and the law firm that represented her, Baggett, McCall, Burgess & Watson, for providing the vast majority of the documents that comprise the initial holdings of the Chemical Industry Archives.

In particular, EWG wishes to thank William Baggett Jr., the extraordinary lead attorney in Ross v. Conoco, who served as EWG's tireless and expert guide through the mountain of chemical industry documents made public through the litigation. Mr. Baggett's generosity with his time and his encyclopedic knowledge of the documents and many issues they raise were indispensable to the development of the Archives. We believe his work marks a true watershed in global efforts to protect workers, communities and consumers from the dangers of toxic industrial chemicals.

We want to acknowledge assistance generously and graciously provided to EWG by other staff at Baggett, McCall, Burgess & Watson: Alise Cappel, Glenna Luther, Dan Boitnott, Bert Cappel, Wells Watson, and William Baggett, Sr.

We wish to thank the dedicated activists that contributed their time and expertise in the development of the stories on this web page: Denny Larson, Neil Carman, Fred Millar, and Paul Orum.

The Environmental Working Group would also like to acknowledge the extraordinary work of Jim Morris, now with U.S. News & World Report, on this subject in the Houston Chronicle, in his series 'in strictest confidence'.
