For those who may not have known Jim but he was a kind and generous man. He
and Mary were central to our difficulties in California during the break up
of the affiliate in 1978. He and Mary fought hard for the NFB against a
faction who wanted to tear apart our California Affiliate. I give my
condolences to Mary and his children.
