This archive is dedicated to Hermann Karcher, who introduced me (despite resistance) the the beautiful theory of minimal surfaces. Many of the surfaces in this collection should bear his name (making it hard to distinguish them).


I would also like to thank many of my colleagues for their inspiration and support, in particular David Hoffman, Bill Meeks, Antonio Ros, Harold Rosenberg, Martin Traizet, and Mike Wolf.


Finally, I would like to thank my students and former students for contributing to this archive in one way or the other: Peter Connor, Michelle Hackman, and Adam Weyhaupt.
