Retirement of our publisher--John H. Whaley, III.
With Laura's transfer to another publication in the company, John Whaley continued to support Ear, Nose & Throat Journal with the appointment of Martin Stevenson, a former editor of the well-known publication, Modern Medicine, as managing editor. John also oversaw the sales operation that sustains Ear, Nose & Throat Journal financially. His decisiveness and dedication to quality were accompanied by the easy-going, friendly manner of a Southern gentleman, which the Tennessee-born Mr. Whaley certainly is. During the seven-and-one-half years that I was associated with John Whaley, he never interfered with editorial material. He allowed complete editorial freedom, which has allowed us to bring our readers the best, most unbiased information possible.
On December 3rd, Marlene and I and a large number of staff and friends attended a festive retirement party held at the historic Hermit Club in Cleveland, at which Mark Goodman, the new publisher, was the very able master of ceremonies. John had a knack for making good magazines and good friends. He now plans to play golf and travel with his wife, Virginia, throughout the world. He has built a fine organization and staff that will carry on his outstanding work. We wish him well.
