I have no other relationship before this one. As far as I can tell, each day brings with it a little better understanding of what that means. Even so, there’s no chance I’ll have it figured out in this lifetime.
Organizational Acknowledgements (et al II)
Achievements the magnitude of which are found in the document are not accomplished by just a few organizations. Here is a list of all (we hope) 397 organizations that contributed. Please let us know of any omissions. With this number of partnerships, we hope you will be patient with us. You can find the complete document here.
Personal Acknowledgements (the et al)
Accomplishments of this magnitude can only be achieved by a vast, dedicated team of people united by a desire to see something wonderful grow and develop. Some lightly touched and changed our course in so doing. Others waded all the way in – bringing heart and soul to the work. Many gave the very best they had because they, like me, love and admire Viktor and Gene Schreckengost and hope the Schreckengost legacy will continue to enrich lives and inspire imaginations for decades to come.
Here follows, in alphabetical order, those who have contributed in their own unique ways. I will be ever grateful for the difference they have made and continue to make. I hope those I happen to neglect to include will forgive me – and give me a chance to make a correction.
Again, thank you.

This document is a catalog of the activities and achievements of the Viktor Schreckengost Studios from June of 2002 through August of 2009. The unstated and admittedly unmeasurable objective in all of the work of the Studios and the Foundation (as currently constituted) during this period was:
“Do good things for the legacy of Viktor Schreckengost.”
The breadth and depth of this initial phase of work was wildly experimental and tremendously diverse. We are unaware of any efforts of this magnitude undertaken in hopes of just “getting a feel for things.” Highlights include:
- Presidential Medal
- Digital catalog with greater than 60,000-records, 7,000 images, and 7,000 serial numbers
- National exhibition with a record-breaking 160+ venues participating displaying well above 890 pieces.
Please note that, during this prolonged startup phase, turning a profit never was a stated
organizational objective. That will likely change in the near future. I’m counting on it. Many
people are counting on it.
Anyway, the most important section of this document starts in the next section – the
acknowledgements. The impact of the legacy of Viktor Schreckengost can only be measure by the difference it makes in the lives of people – individuals. And, as the acknowledgements show, even the smallest of efforts gives rise to a tremendous outpouring of support for this “American da Vinci.” The names of the people and organizations touched by Dad’s genius is only a small representation of his overall impact.
He has and continues to touch the lives of millions whether measured in improvements in quality of life or in dollars (greater than $250B at last count).
And I believe we’ve only seen the beginning.
Thank your for taking the time to learn a little bit more about the work Viktor Schreckengost continues to inspire. Along with everyone else, I have felt honored and humbled to be a part of this legacy as it continues to grow. Once touched, no one is ever the same.
This record is dedicated to everyone who moved the work of Viktor Schreckengost forward.
