Blake’s Managing Editors, 1986-
Blake has always been lucky in its managing editors. Since 1986, when the journal moved to the University of Rochester, Patricia Neill has been its only managing editor. You who have dealt with her over those years will understand why we lamented her decision to abandon Rochester for the hills and valleys of southern Indiana last year. Patty’s exceptional editorial and personal skills were captured by United Way in Bloomington, where she is Communications Director. Back at home, our new managing editor is Sarah Jones, a native of New Zealand. The last issue that Patty Neill supervised was spring 2001, and Sarah Jones’s first issue is in your hands. Patty took us through the transition from old-style camera-ready copy to electronic layout; we’re counting on Sarah to take us the next step, where electronic layout meets the Web. Many thanks and a very fond farewell to Patty, and a hearty welcome to Sarah.
