The Glenfield History Book coordinators wish to express appreciation to the Foster County Independent for much historical information, to the township coordinators who gathered and compiled their history, to the writers of stories about businesses, school, churches, and organizations, and to all those who participated by writing family histories, and by providing pictures for the history book.

Our sincere thanks to the Glenfield Senior Citizens for the use of the Community Center, to the Jamestown Sun, the Buffalo Mall, The Independent, and the First American Bank and Trust of Carrington, Griggs County Sentinel Courier, and the Cooperstown City Hall for their help in promoting our "Beacon Hill Mansion" that was raffled off July 18. Proceeds from the ticket sales helped with the cost of publishing this history book. Our thanks to all who purchased tickets.

The coordinators thank those people who dedicated time and energy to typing and proofreading, especially Don Eberhardt and staff of Two Rivers Printing, Inc., for their hours of service in any capacity contributing to the development of the final production.

We request our readers to forgive errors. Every effort was made to be accurate. If your family was omitted, it was unintentional. We hope we have not overlooked any era or phase of development of our community. Much effort was made to be thorough to make this history as accurate as possible.

The coordinators hope that the book will be as satisfying to its readers as the project was challenging to them. This was a community effort, and the success of the committee and the book itself was dependent on the efforts of many people. Our sincere thanks to all.

Throughout the Glenfield History, numerous articles and photographs were used, courtesy of the Foster County Independent. Again, we would like to give our sincere thanks to the staff of The Independent for assisting us and giving us the permission to reprint the articles and photos.
