The following candidates received the votes necessary to automatically appear on the 2012 ballot:
F. Scott Fitzgerald
New Business: We need to consider, inter alia, how long candidates who do not receive the minimum number of votes must remain off-ballot. Forever? Five years? One year?
We should also discuss who is eligible to vote, and to nominate candidates going forward.
This year's class was limited to the top 12 vote-getters. Do we want to continue restricting class size? If we do, how many candidates should be inducted each year?
Finally, for each of this year's inductees I think it would be nice to draft a citation, which can be posted here, and sent to those who are still living. We don't have to do it all at once. Who would like to do the first one?
