First Paragraph

We are—as a body—beholden in an extraordinary way to our good friend and longtime colleague, Dr. Melbourne Briscoe. He has served The Oceanography Society (TOS) admirably for 20-odd years (and I use that term not to imply approximation of time frame, but actually to qualify the eccentric nature of the past two decades—many of the years truly were odd).
