Post How Ironic (Charles N. Brown passes)
Charles N. Brown, member of the THS Board, passed on in his sleep on the way home...from ReaderCon.

His board membership is absent from his obituary.

R.I.P. He had an influence on the field on a par only with the early magazine and zine editors. I'm not surprised his THS board membership did not make it into such short obit.

If anyone knows who his executor is, or any other details about the settlement and disposal of his estate, I would GREATLY appreciate the information. There is an item in his collection that is of unique value to me, and if I cannot acquire it at this time I need to know its disposition.

As I related in another post (or maybe it was on the old forum), I purchased three signed Heinlein novels from him about 10 years ago. The best thing about the purchase was the email from Charles Brown in which he recalled the evening that Heinlein gave him the books.
