Quonset: Metal Living for a Modern Age could not have been possible without the generous support of a number of individuals, businesses, and organizations. We are indebted to the many volunteers who worked on research for the project, the photographers who helped to document the subject, the libraries and museums that offered assistance and artifacts, and the individuals and businesses that provided financial support so that this information could be shared.

The exhibition was organized by the Anchorage Museum of History and Art and the Alaska Design Forum. The exhibition has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: great ideas brought to life.
