Krause Publications' NumisMaster web site published an article December 9th on the retirement of longtime editor Colin R. Bruce. -EditorStandard Catalog of World Coins senior editor Colin R. Bruce II retired Oct. 31 at the age of 69 after more than 34 years in the Krause Publications' catalog department.
He was hired in April 1974 by Clifford Mishler to take over and improve upon the pioneering work created by Mishler, Chet Krause and other staff members. The Standard Catalog is now in its 36th edition and other volumes break the information down by centuries.
Of his time as head of the catalog department, Bruce said, "My job here was so hobby-related and enjoyable that I could easily handle the long hours before deadlines and the weekends at shows here and abroad."
"We are forever indebted to Colin for the pioneering work he did building the KP world coins database into the best in existence," said KP numismatics publisher Scott Tappa. "We intend to honor Colin's legacy by continuing to offer coin collectors the most comprehensive catalog and price guide available to enthusiasts worldwide."
Senior market analysts Tom Michael and George Cuhaj will take over Bruce's catalog duties.
