    Dear MSR community,

    This posting is a bit out of the blue, my apologies if the timing seems strange to some of you. Charles Tackney aka Charlie was the MSR chair during the 2019-2020 academic year. For many weeks now, I have had occasion to think back to his leadership style during the difficult year of the pandemic. He guided many of us through the virtual AOM with patience, professionalism, scholarship, and a lightness of touch that were wonderful to see and experience. Thank you, Charlie, you are truly a scholar and a gentleman. The MSR community is fortunate to have you on its leadership track.

    Writing this and posting it while i think of it.

    Warmly,

    Chris Laszlo
