Fellowship

The Work Goes On, The Cause Endures… 

Robert’s lifetime of volunteerism and good deeds continue through a number of organizations that honor his memory in annual conferences, fellowships and awards.

Earlier this week, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association Educational Fund (AEF), announced the recipients of their 2010 grants and fellowships.  Congrats to Stephanie Kang, a student at U.C. Hastings Law for winning the Robert E. Wone Fellowship.

“Created in 2007, the Robert E. Wone Fellowship is a new fellowship that is awarded to a summer fellowship applicant who most embodies what Robert wanted to be as a lawyer – a trusted member of the community, making a difference in public policies and seeing the effects of his efforts improving the situation of people around him.”

The underachievers out there can do their part too, by making a contribution to the Robert Wone Memorial Trust.  Robert’s family established the Trust, in which funds are distributed to some of his favorite projects and causes.  Please consider cutting a fat check to the trust and sending it here:

    They take skinny checks, too! If any of you are like me and can’t afford much, I found it VERY heartwarming that my $20.00 was thanked as if it had been 20grand.

    Craig:
    Great idea.
    Do you have any data on who is on the board of the Robert Wone Trust and what type of projects other than the one sited to which they give support?
    Do they issue reports or are they accountable to some public source?
    Thanks.

      Good questions, Eagle.

      BTW, as an historian, I would love to see a comparison and analysis of the boards and contributors to the Wone Trust and the Price Defense Fund. Future scholars may be interested in the social and professional differences, if any, that made two groups of people see the same evidence in conflicting ways.

        Good idea.
        Wouldn’t that be fascinating!
        How about analyzing who gave contribution3 before and after the 1) Ward affidavit and 2) after the Judge’s decision!!
        Or better still, interview contributors.
        All we need now is funding and staff.
        Excelsior!

          The funding and staff could come from William and Mary, of all places. While canvassing all relevant individuals, the Tribe could analyze the actions and inactions of its own members, in particular: Margaret Mead, eat your heart out!
