            Into  Centuries of Centuries:
 Reflections on Marc R. Poirier (1952-2015)

                         John A. Lovetf

       Marc Poirier was an innovative scholar,   a fantastic men-
              tor and teacher, and last, but certainly not least, a
              great friend to many, many members of the property
law community.  I am not sure when I first met Marc because it seems
as if I have known him since my very first days as a law professor.
Our first meeting must have occurred at one of the annual breakfast
meetings of the Property Law Section of the American Association
of Law Schools (AALS). In his booming, confident voice and with his
warm  smile, Marc would  have stood up from the table and talked
about his recent work and invited everyone to join him for another
event at the annual meeting, perhaps a SALT support group, a med-
itation session, or an environmental law field trip. At the rest of the
meeting, Marc would  have been omnipresent. He would be the first
person to stand up and praise panelists' presentations and then the
first to ask a probing question.
   In May  2015, Marc and I travelled to the ALPS conference at the
University of Georgia Law School in Athens, Georgia. We rented a
car together at the Atlanta airport and then drove, along with ALPS
colleague Sally Richardson, to Athens. Marc and I spent a lot of time
together at that conference. We enjoyed meals together with friends,
