An enormous debt of gratitude is due to Stacey Devlin who designed and implemented this new website in the summer of 2012 during her Research Assistantship at Algoma University under the supervision of Doris Lessing Society President, Alice Ridout. Thanks also to Michael DiSanto, Robin Isard and the Department of English at Algoma University for their advice and support.

Many thanks to Melissa Ide and Phyllis Perrakis for designing the first Doris Lessing Society website and to Debrah Raschke for maintaining and developing the Society website for so many years at Southeast Missouri State University. Thanks to SMSU for hosting the site and to Chris Callow, Sharon Miller and CSTL for their assistance.

Thanks to all Society members who provided images, information, and book reading notes for the website.
