In collecting all this data, generous help was provided by a number of people.
all by Elisabeth Hussey (Kandahar Sci Club), Ingrid Wicken
(California Ski Library, Norco)
and Rune Flaaten (Holmenkolen Ski Museum). Later, at various points in time Carly Thomas
(Canadian Ski Museum), Mike Leach (Mt. Mansfield Ski Club), John Allen (New England
Ski Museum), and Alessandra Ravelli (CAI, Turin) helped to fill in the missing results.
In completing the results from

Toshinaru Takehana (Hokkaido University Reference Division, Sapporo), Shirley Ito (Amateur
Athletic Foundation, Los Angeles), and from L'Equipe de Maison des Jeux, Albertville.
Missing data from the World
Championships were provided by the FIS ladies - Sarah Lewis,
Sonja Reichen, Karin Gurtner, as well as Marie-Jo Paillard (FFS), Martina Breitfuss
(Schladming Ski World Cup office), Olle Rolen and Pernilla Hammar-Rognoy (Åre 2007 AB),
Anna Lookabill-Scott (Aspen Historical Society), and Elsa Claret-Tournier (ENSA Chamonix).
Considerable on-line material was
also provided by several ski clubs. For instance the Kitzbuehel
ski club has posted all the result sheets from the year 1955 onwards. Ski club Maribor have put on-line
all the results for the Golden Fox (Zlata Lisica) races. The same was, also, done by the ski club of
Kranjska Gora for the Vitranc Cup, and by the Club des Sports of Val d’Isere for the Criterium of
the First Snow (Criterium de la Premiere Neige), but in the meantime, for some reason, they have
withdrawn such material from the internet.
Copies of results for several dozen
major events can be also found at the Canadian Ski Museum website.
At the web site www.sciatoridepoca.it (run by Marco Grassi) scores of Italian ski magazines, containing
complete results of many major races, can be downloaded.
