To The Rothbaum Family- Was saddened to learn of your father's passing. I first became acquainted with Mel when he was Director of the Institute of Labor and Industrial Relations. He initiated the formation of a formal constituent alumni group and recruited a Board in the early 80's to give leadership to alumni activities. As the Board's first President, I was privileged to work closely with Mel and his Staff. He was a consummate professional in his field and the Institute grew under his leadership. Over the ensuing years, my wife and I socialized with Mel and Janice several times. They were a great couple. We will all miss Mel's quiet, natural way of relating to people and know that many people in Champaign-Urbana
will always miss his contributions to the community.
