CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER OBITUARY OF MILTON R. FRIEDBERG

[Last week John and Nancy Wilson penned a tribute to
numismatic author Milton R. Friedberg.  On Sunday February
24th the Cleveland Plain Dealer published an obituary of
Friedberg noting his interest in a very different collectible
topic. -Editor]

Milton R. Friedberg, who died Feb. 8 at age 90, manufactured
antennas for citizens band radios, police dispatch centers
and mobile phones.

The Brecksville resident also wrote books, but not about
antennas. He penned catalogues about coin collecting and
teddy bears.

Friedberg held degrees in electrical and mechanical engineering
from what is now Cleveland State University. He held patents
for such items as antenna mounting supports and concealed
antenna supports.

His numismatics hobby led to his penning "The Encyclopedia
of United States Postal and Fractional Currency."

Friedberg, who became fascinated with the Hermann teddy bears
a few years ago, also wrote "Teddy Bears and Stuffed Animals:
Hermann Teddy Originals, 1913-1998."
