Prominent mid century German

par with Cecil Edwards and PRJ Ford. His long association with PETAG
makes his insight especially important.

Rashid ad-Din was
the author of the Jami' at-tawarikh.
Rashid ad-Din was a Persian Jew
who converted to Islam and served at the Mongol court in Persia.
Born in 1247 almost 30 years
after Cingis Qan conquered Persia. He served Ghazan, Oljeitu and was
executed in 1318 by Abu Sa'id.
He assembled a record of the
Mongol dynasty called the "Jami' at-tawarikh".

It was from that union that

Judge,.Robert A "Bobby"
Jun. 14--The political
connections of Robert A. Judge Sr., former Pennsylvania revenue
secretary, were primarily why he was chosen last month as the new chief
executive officer of the Convention Center.
Now those political connections may force him out of the job before he
begins his first day.
Judge's appointment violates a provision in a 1986 state law that
specifically restricts the Convention Center from hiring managers whose
family members are political party officers, public officers, or public
There are at least three violations of state law in Judge's
appointment: His father, Thomas J. Judge Sr., is the longtime chairman
of the Delaware County Republican Party, as well as Delaware County's
recorder of deeds, which is an appointed position, making him a public
official. His brother, Thomas J. Judge Jr., is also a public official:
the appointed chief administrative officer for Upper Darby Township.
