I became Editor of the Journal of Marine Research in January of 1973 and resigned with the November, 2009 issue; although, in fact, Ken Brink essentially took over the task during the summer of 2009, when I ended up in the hospital for a period of six-months. As of this issue (Volume 68, Number 1), Ken becomes the official Editor.
