Abstract: Families of rational surfaces containing resolutions of cusp singularities are explicitly constructed. It is proved that the families constructed are universal deformations at each point. Two different monodromy formulas are established; one of these is shown to be connected to automorphisms of Inoue-Hirzebruch surfaces. Some evidence (but no proof) is offered for the conjecture that finite base changes of the families we construct are the versal-deformation spaces for singular Inoue-Hirzebruch surfaces.
