Comments

I met my wife of 50 years, Georjean, from Kalamazoo College, on the GLCA Japan Program junior year. We traveled around the world together. We were married in 1972, and spent the summer as tour guides in Europe. We then traveled back to Japan for the Shansi Program, returning to campus in '74 to complete the program, celebrate the birth of our first child, and teach in the Billy Jean King tennis program on campus. Serving in an ombudsman role in NJ led me to discover mediation, and spent 3 years as a NJ State mediator. Spent from 1978-1987 in the Federal Mediation Service, and joined the National Center for Dispute Settlement until 2010. Started my own firm---the Hartfield Resolution Group--in 2010 through 2021. Am honored to have been appointed by Presidents Clinton, Obama, and Biden to the Federal Service Impasses Panel. I am retired except for my work with the Panel. I loved my career, and I am grateful beyond measure to Georjean for having made it possible.

Are you planning to attend our 50th reunion in person?

Yes

Cary san, I enjoyed reading about how you have spent your time since Oberlin. Your ExCo course was essential in me getting a head start in Japanese, doing well at Waseda, and then having a very successful Shansi Fellowship experience in Kanazawa. Sorry I won't be seeing you at the Reunion, but I do want to say, however belatedly, Domo Arigato Gozaimasu! Ed Hartfield
