Center, Drake University Law School; B.S. 1974, Florida State University; J.D. 1977,
University of Florida. This chronology is adapted, with permission, from THOMAS E.
BAKER, RATIONING JUSTICE ON APPEAL-THE PROBLEMS OF THE U.S. COURTS OF APPEALS 31-
43 (1994). Striving for brevity and readability, it is candor, rather than immodesty, that
compels me to include annotations to some of my previous publications when I have
written at length on a particular topic briefly mentioned here. See Charles R. Adams, I,
Lest We Forget: The History of the Mercer Law Review, 50 MERCER L. REV. 7, 23 n.67 (1998)
(describing author as a professor [then located] in Texas whose life was consumed with
little else).
