They're Changing Guard at Buckingham Palace . . .

And the JER has a new Managing Editor. It is a real pleasure to introduce Kate Tyler Wall who came to us from the Journals Department of the International Reading Association in Newark, Delaware, taking over from Tricia Manning, who left for the green pastures of West Philly and a full-time editorial gig with the National Board of Medical Examiners.

Kate has brought to our operations many years of experience and a disposition admirably suited to dealing with the vagaries of your humble correspondent's personality and musical tastes. I have a feeling that Kate has found coping with the journal's business to be the easier than coping with me, but she'd be far too polite acknowledge this. In any case, I'd like to ask you to join me in extending Kate the warmest of welcomes. Stop up and see us any time in our beautiful office in the Cassatt House at 1320 Locust Street, Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, I want to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to Kate's predecessor, Tricia Manning, for her extraordinary efforts during the JER's first two years at Philly. Simply put, Tricia was the key to the success of the transition, which she oversaw with the grace, intelligence and good humor that those around her (who, me and those two Purdue guys?) found much harder to muster. On behalf of the SHEAR membership and the JER readership, I'd like to thank Tricia, wish her the best of luck with her new post, and charge her to enjoy all the rights, privileges, responsibilities, and appurtenances attached to the title of Managing Editor Emerita, which I do hereby and unilaterally bestow upon her.
