On behalf of the staff, members and leadership of the Medieval Academy, I want to offer my thanks to Jacqueline Brown for her thirty-three years of service to Speculum and the Academy. Since 1981, she has edited hundreds of articles and more than 9,000 book reviews, guiding hundreds of authors from submission to publication. With her uncompromising attention to detail and consistency and her commitment to grammatical and rhetorical rigor, Jackie has earned the respect and gratitude of all who have worked with her. We are particularly grateful for her service these last eight months, when she stepped into the role of Acting Editor with little notice and proceeded to return the journal to a regular publication schedule without compromising the high standards for which Speculum is known. All of us in the office will miss her, and we wish her good luck in her retirement.
– Lisa Fagin Davis, Acting Executive Director
