KAHN--Irving. The family of Irving Kahn's son, Alan R. Kahn, announces with profound sorrow the passing of our patriarch in his 110th year. Irving was a man of immensely diverse interests whose life was as full as it was long. He pursued a lifetime of reading and learning in all fields, particularly the sciences. He was a pioneer in the investment world, having honed his craft as a student of the late Benjamin Graham of Columbia University (in whose classes he met the woman-through borrowing her homework-who was to become his wife, the late Ruth Perl Kahn). To Alan, Irving was as much a mentor as Benjamin Graham was to him. We, his loving son and daughter-in-law, granddaughters and grandson-in-Iaw, and great-grandchildren, will sorely miss his guidance, wisdom, and ever-cheerful outlook on life. Alan, Linda Parnes Kahn, Dr. Amanda H. Kahn-Kirby (Mason), Dr. Kimberly R. Kahn, Julia and Miles Kirby.
