SCHIMMEL--Stuart B. The Council of the Grolier Club is deeply saddened to learn of the death of fellow member and former Councilor Stuart B. Schimmel. A Grolier member since 1961, Stuart served on the Grolier Club Council from 1972 to 1986, chairing committees on Audit, Public Exhibitions, Special Functions, and Finance. Exhibitions from his personal collections of Literary Forgers and Forgeries (1961) and Collectors in Fiction (1994), and his curatorial role in shows of artwork from the New Yorker (1974), and New York in literature (1978), represent just a few of his activities in the world of books, and his knowledge and enthusiastic presence will be sorely missed. We join with his many friends and colleagues in extending heartfelt sympathy to his wife, Caroline. Eugene S. Flamm, President
