Ray Williams, past president of the Colonial Coin Collectors Club writes:
Al Hoch started The Colonial Newsletter and Jim took it over shortly after its founding.
He was instrumental in promoting colonial research as editor of CNL for decades.
I hope that future generations of colonial collectors remember him for all the knowledge we have due to his dedication, research and selfless hard work.
