All good things must come to an end. So it is with this series of photo albums. This will be a loss for some of you (and you know who you are), but hopefully you can find some good grief counseling.
This album is from a smorgasbord of events, starting (or really ending) with a remarkable three-week workshop that Nancy Rogers, Frank Sander, and Craig McEwen organized at Ohio State in 1993. The pictures are mostly from the last century, though there are a few from the 21st Century. Some of the dates and events may not be quite right, so let me know if you see any errors.

Ron Kelly was on a legendary session about the Uniform Mediation Act. He listed a long list of exceptions to confidentiality under the draft and, after each one, he drilled a hole in the bottom of the wastebasket shown in the photo. He built up to a dramatic crescendo and then poured a pitcher of water into the bucket to illustrate the protection under the Act. After that, Richard Reuben, who was a reporter for the Act, held up the wastebasket and said, “This is the protection with the Act.” Then he flung it aside and said, “This is the protection without the Act.” Quite a session.

At a 1998 “moveable feast” organized by Chris Honeyman. Kim Kovach, Jim Boskey, Michelle LeBaron, John Lande, Maria Volpe. The ABA SDR sponsors a student essay contest named after Jim Boskey. He was a one-man blog-listserv-website-ssrn, publishing thick newsletters with a comprehensive listing and descriptions of new books, articles, videos, and any other DR resources. Back then, one (obsessed) person could do that.
