RE: (IAAC) Our "Astronomical Friend" Roger Tuthill, Dies
I saw Roger at the Jersey Starquest two years ago, he was like a local celebrity! In any
case, his club, AAI, is a great club, I see people from there every year at Starquest,
and Barry Malpas is a friend who has done talks at my local astro club. Thanks for
spreading the new (however sad). He will be very much missed in New Jersey.
