November Retrospective

Share this post:

This month we premiered a retirement series that included the top new post of the month, The Final Act – Mark Strattner Reflects on Retirement.  The series also featured An Interview with Alvin J. Wallace and Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow: The Retirement of Stephen Clarke.

A couple of our posts were mentioned in other blogs.  Dante’s guest post on the Lecture by Professor Allan Brewer-Carías was referenced and linked in the Legal History Blog.  Kelly’s Thanksgiving post from last year was referenced and linked in another blog that posted on the History of Thanksgiving.

My first retrospective post appeared in November 2010.  I thought it would be a nice feature to add what was popular last year.  The top posts at this time, then,  were:

1. An Interview with Brian Kuhagen
2. What Does This Symbol Mean?
3. Law Library Logo – Pic of the Week

Currently, the top posts for last month:
1. The Inspiring Story of Nelson Mandela
2. The Final Act – Mark Strattner Reflects on Retirement
3. Researching Federal Statutes
4. Teaching with the Raw Materials of the Law: Primary Sources and the Legislative Process
5. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
6. A THOMAS Time Capsule
7. Slavery in the French Colonies: Le Code Noir (the Black Code) of 1685
8. October Retrospective
9. Laws in a Crusader State
10. The THOMAS Starting Point – Pic of the Week

Our top commented on blog post was The Final Act – Mark Strattner Reflects on Retirement.

On our Facebook page, the most liked post was The Final Act – Mark Strattner Reflects on Retirement.  The most clicked through post from Facebook was An Interview with LeeAnne Rupple.  On Twitter, it was Celebrating Veterans Day.

This month, in addition to our retirement series, we interviewed Donna and LeeAnne.  My favorite November photos are:
