Really sorry to hear this. I roomed with Don at the Sept 2001 ARSC/IASA
in London when Steve couldn't attend. Nice guy, very knowledgable, and
from what I heard, a great collection.

I had the pleasure of knowing Don for a number of years, and using some
fabulous collection in various reissues. He came up to Toronto with Dave
Canfield a few times and we'll all visit at Peter Fulop's..I believe
bought much of Don's collection. I was just about to e-mail Peter about
something else..I wonder if he's heard?
