•Following the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Fellow Charles Fischbach was acknowledged by the University of Wisconsin for having advocated, and then successfully negotiated with Baltimore City government management, for the adoption of the first Dr. King Day in a major municipality (or state). Long before it became a federal holiday, Mr. Fischbach convinced Baltimore Mayor William Donald Schaefer to sign a proclamation naming January 15, 1974, as Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the city. Congress passed a law creating a federal holiday nine years later, but it wasn’t until 2000 that the holiday was observed in all 50 states.

The College mourns the recent passing of Fellow David E. Jones, who passed away on June 20th, after an 18-month battle with cancer. A member of the Class of 2011, he was a shareholder at Ogletree Deakins for twenty-five years and a nationally recognized expert in workplace safety law who is credited with establishing Ogletree’s Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group. In addition, he was an active member of the ABA’s Occupational Safety and Health Law Committee, having served as an Employer Co-Chair. His experience in occupational safety and health law included practice in virtually every state which made David a dynamic public speaker and a caring mentor to many attorneys. His distinguished forty-year practice in both the public and the private sectors was outdone only by the highest level of character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership that he demonstrated in his everyday life. A link to his obituary can be found here.
Members of the College strive to promote achievement, advancement and excellence in the practice of labor and employment law. David distinguished himself as a leader in the field, and the College was proud to have been able to call him a Fellow. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
