Dear Friends,
Many of you may have known Peter Abrahams of Portland, Oregon.  Peter was one 
of the first members of NASS, which was where I met him some 25 years ago.  He 
was also active in other scientific instrument societies, such as the Antique 
Telescope Society, the Scientific Instrument Commission, etc.

I am deeply saddened to say that Peter passed away suddenly last week of a 
massive heart attack.  He will be greatly missed.
