Tuesday evening David Schenkman mentioned to me the amazing longevity of John Coffee's run as editor of the journal of the American Vecturist Association.
Pete Smith writes:
I learned that John Coffee died Tuesday evening. After producing "The Fare Box" for over fifty years, he was not able to do the last few issues and had some help from other AVA members.
I've been away over the weekend and Pete, David Gladfelter and other members of the AVA have forwarded images and other information, but it's late and I'm unable to pull it all together for tonight's issue - I'll provide more next week. Meanwhile, other notes and reminiscences of John Coffee are welcome.
