In the foreword of this extensive reference, Pam Meyer, long-time collector and educator about Depression glass, and chairperson of the National Depression Glass Association convention speaks about the incomparable connection with the past that comes from collecting Depression glass. "Learning about Depression glass is like taking a stroll down the history of our country. By immersing yourself into learning about the hard times of the people living in the Depression era, you get a sense of pride. "They didn't have much but they were able to "collect" pretty colored glassware when they purchased goods. Collecting today is nothing more than collecting pieces of history."
