First, to a brilliant post by Dave Noon.
Second, to a History of the GEO. I was working on my opening lines for NYU this morning and went looking for my own grad union’s history and there is was. It took us 10 years from start to recognition, and I was involved Fall of 1993-Spring of 1999. So I left not Illinois not knowing whether our efforts would ever come to fruition. I should write something about that whole project, but for now, the official history will have to do.
