This is for everyone who wants to wish Mac a (belated!) happy birthday and to thank him for sharing his incomparable knowledge of cataloging. I made this card from a word cloud of the subject lines of Mac’s posts to Autocat from the period of 2015-2016, and from his very first year, 1996-1997 using Tagul. I also based the shape from a picture of him from an online conference when I was lucky enough to be included as a virtual speaker. I thought he looked especially snazzy. Please share your best wishes below.
Wishing you a very happy birthday, Mac!
Happy Birthday Mac. Thank you for all the wonderful posts over the years. I learned so much from you and it made me a better cataloger.
Happy Birthday! Thank you for all of your wonderful help, advice and support!
Happy belated birthday! Whose AUTOCAT posts will I read voraciously now? Not to mention those lovely holiday images.
Happy Birthday, Mac! I've followed your posts since the beginning of my cataloging career. Thank you so much for your contributions to the profession!
Sending thoughts of precious professional memories to one of the best (and few) remaining Renaissance librarians roaming the planet. When this cataloging dinosaur began his career in the early sixties, I was surrounded by multi-talented Renaissance professionals. Now, every one is a specialist and the communication "baby" has been discarded with the 'bathwater." Thanx for all your help and professional focus over the years. -- With all kind thoughts,, -- Bernie Karon [Faculty Emeritus, University of Minnesota]

Happy Birthday Mac! Thanks for adding your expertise all these years to Autocat and other listservs. We will never forget you!
Belated birthday wishes to you, Mac. I learned early on in my cataloging career that your remarks were ones to pay attention to. I learned from them, and felt you were a friend I just hadn't met in person yet.
Happy Belated Birthday!
