I would like to express a big “Thank You” to all the Presidents and Board Members of each and every cottage who took the time and furnished us with a lot of information and pictures. Without your help we could have never known of all the interesting activities that are going on in your houses.
This web-book is full of beautiful pictures, to show the authentic costumes of each Nationality and their cottages in Balboa Park. Irmgard Blauser furnish us with many pictures. A lot of pictures came from the websites as well as people from the different houses. Dr. Aileen Alvarado-Swaisgood spent endless hours working on the beautiful website and integrating the materials for the "International Journey" as part of the HPR website.
Thanks to all who contributed to this project.
