Chapter Summary

As soon as Stephen Schwebel announced his resignation as Executive Director, effective June 30, 1974, the Society's Executive Committee met in closed session to consider the appointment of his successor. Although the Society had some investment funds when Seymour Rubin took office, he regarded the available reserves as woefully inadequate for the Society's needs. At the Executive Council meeting in November 1974, Richard Falk brought up the question that never seems to go away: whether the Society should take a position on a matter of current importance. In 1975, the Committee on Annual Awards recommended that the Society's Certificate of Merit be awarded to Arthur Rovine for The Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law. The Committee rendered its final report on April 18, 1985. Part of it dealt with the Society's policy on taking positions regarding substantive issues. Another part dealt with Tillar House.
