Dan Martin’s interest in JASA goes back to his college days, but his major role has been in the position of patent review editor, in which role he worked faithfully for 20 years and, of course, as editor‐in‐chief for the past 14 years. Like Lindsay before him, he took the post just after serving as President of the Society, and presided over major changes in the journal, including a steady expansion of its size and the plunge into electronic publishing. Dan conducted these operations with skill, patience, and efficiency, and the Society’s debt to him is great.
