Former ICOIL Chair... by Mark Bair - August 9 2003
Former chair Mark Bair, who died in a nursing home on June 9, 2007, wrote this several years ago, but it is still completely accurate today. I never actually had an opportunity to meet the man, and he did not know me (I wasn't in the spotlight then...) But I sat in the back of the room of a meeting he chaired once and I was impressed, because even though he didn't know who I was...he was willing to stand up for me and other people like me... more importantly he let me talk. Back then, after that meeting I just walked away, but I am not walking away now.
