Extern in British West Indies
Students interested in a six-credit externship
with The Anguilla National Trust in Anguilla,
British West Indies, should turn in a cover letter
addressed to Faculty Supervisor Professor Lynn
McGilvray-Saltzman along with their resume,
transcripts and writing sample to Career Services
by noon, Feb. 27. Students also must meet require-
ments established by UF's International Center

(listed in the externship general information sheet
on Career Services' website).
Since Anguilla is a small Caribbean island
that is an Overseas Territory of the United
Kingdom, their legislation is based on British Law
and may be of interest to students engaged in com-
parative studies on environmental law. The Trust is
particularly interested in an examination of how
legislation meets the obligations of Multi-Lateral
Environmental Agreements being considered for
extension to Anguilla, and exploration of whether
draft legislation for Biodiversity Conservation is in
harmony with legislation pertaining to physical
planning and land use. Fully funded students with
interests in these areas are welcome. Students will
be expected to share findings with policy-makers
in Anguilla and the media. The Trust will provide
office facilities, Internet access and a memorable
Caribbean island experience. O

Stress & Time Management Series
A four-part workshop on stress and time manage-
ment presented by the Office of Student Affairs begins
this Tuesday, Feb, 24. In this first class, we will assess
our stressors to determine our stress levels. We will
then categorize those stressors and create realistic
plans for addressing them.
Each class takes an hour, and subsequent sessions
will be held March 2, 16 and 23, all at noon in the
auditorium. Each is designed to stand alone, and you
do not have to attend all four. The value of attending
all four is that you will have a wider base of knowledge
for dealing with the array of stressors life hands you.
In addition, students who attend all four receive a
certificate of completion.
The format of the workshops empowers you to
create solutions on your own so you can continue to
develop custom techniques for future challenges.
Participants in the workshop will likely have vary-

In Memoriam: Professor Emeritus James Quarles
Levin College of Law Professor Emeritus (1969-96) James C. Quarles
passed away Saturday, Feb. 14, at the age of 82.
"His was a well-lived life," said Professor Joseph Little. "He was a consum-
mate southern gentleman, with all the attendant virtues: courteous, soft-spoken,
moderate in word and deed, generous, serious when required, piquantly humor-
ous when appropriate, unerringly true to his word, and unfaltering in shouldering
more than his share of any burden."
Professor Emeritus Mandell Glicksberg, a friend and colleague of Quarles
for close to 35 years, concurred with Professor Little's assessment, and added, James Quarles
"Jim was well-liked and highly respected by his students and his colleagues. He 1921-2004
was a gentleman in every sense of the word. He was a good friend, and will be
greatly missed."
Quarles was preceded in death by his wife, Prudence Quarles, and leaves behind his sons, UF law
graduates James Peyton Quarles (UF JD 75) of South Daytona Beach and Christopher Sinclair Quarles
(UF JD 79) of Ormond Beach, a daughter, Rebecca Q. McLeod of Tallahassee, his former wife, Audrey
Clark of Gainesville, and two grandchildren and two stepgrandchildren.
"I am very proud of my father's legacy. He taught literally thousands of law students over a career
that spanned more than 50 years," said Chris Quarles. "In my work as an assistant public defender doing
capital appeals, I talk to many lawyers around the state. Almost weekly, I encounter lawyers who were
taught by my father. Many comment on his dry wit and tough grading policy."
Quarles' chief love was teaching. While at Mercer and UF, he taught almost every course offered in
a traditional law curriculum, concentrating at UF on his favorites, United States Constitutional Law and
Criminal Law.
"I cannot imagine my father being anything but a law professor," said James Peyton Quarles. "I was
surprised recently when he told me that he had no idea he would become a law professor. Being a law
professor was so much a part of him, I had assumed that he always planned to teach. It was very fortu-
nate for my father and his future students that his initial teaching opportunity presented itself. He loved
teaching and the law school atmosphere. His influence was such that he even convinced both of his sons
to become lawyers! We will all miss him."
"Several prominent lawyers have told me that my father's class changed their lives," said Chris
Quarles. "Initially disillusioned with law school, they chose to finish after enrolling in my father's crimi-
nal or constitutional law class. They fell in love with the subject and credit my father with the fact that
they stayed in school. I am extremely proud of my father. He also was a wonderful parent and provider.
His legacy will live on for decades."
Quarles was born in Charlottesville, Virginia, and graduated with distinction from the University of
Virginia School of Law, where he was senior editor of the Virginia Law Review and member of the Order
of the Coif. He clerked for Judge Parker of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, then worked for the
Michie Law Publishing Company.
In 1947, he began teaching law at Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in Macon,
Georgia, where he co-founded the Mercer Law Review and served as law school dean (1956-69). He was
recruited from Mercer in 1969 to become executive director of the now defunct Florida Law Revision
Commission, then housed at the UF College of Law. He was appointed professor of law shortly there-
after, and soon earned a reputation for active service on numerous law school committees. He chaired the
faculty dean search committee that produced Joseph R. (Dick) Julin as dean, and over the next 30 years
led numerous governing committees in the college, university and community.
"Year after year he did more committee work than anyone else, and semester after semester he
taught more students than any other faculty member," said Little. "This is not merely to acknowledge
that Jim always earned his pay. It also acknowledges a huge institutional debt. Jim's capacity and will-
ingness to do more than his share freed others to pursue interests which often were much less connected
to the institution and its students."
"He was a wonderful colleague and an exquisitely sensitive human being," said Professor Winston
Nagan. "He had a wry sense of humor, touched with great gentility. He will be missed." 0
