Oberon's met on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at the Bloomfield Twp. library for the first time in several months. We were delighted to enjoy the company of Sharon Hunter, Robin Browne, Mara Radzvickas, Rosey Hunter, and our chairperson Richard Joyrich, MD for an afternoon of companionship. We missed our good friend Reynaldo Perez who suffered complications from surgery on October 26 2016 and is currently being cared for at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital at  5301 McAuley Dr, Ypsilanti, MI 48197. We send our love and support.

Joyrich reported on the Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship's Nov. 3-6 conference in Boston where he retained his first vice-president position on the SOF board of trustees. 

Joyrich gave a PowerPoint review of our Oberon colleague Tom Townsend's conference presentation, "DeVere's Lesser Legacy: The Legal Compact of Equity" on the topic of equitly law and common law in Shakespeare's work and milieu. He enjoyed dinner in Boston with Tom and Joy Townsend, now relocated to Seattle. We send our hearty congratulations to Townsend on his intricate study of this topic.

Joyrich also told us that the upcoming 2016 edition of the SOF journal, Brief Chronicles edited by Roger Stritmatter and Michael Delahoyde, will be the final edition of that publication. He also said that the latest edition of SOF journal The Oxfordian, Vol. 18, is available to SOF members online. Because the newest edition is published, volume 17 is now available to the public online.
