Seen on the Winker - the eNewsletter of the Stanley Museum. Written by D. Howard Randall jr., Managing Trustee and Board Chair.
As we prepared to go to press we were saddened to hear the news that Jeff Theobald of the Steam Car Club of Great Britain had passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on October 6, 2010. Jeff was a good friend to everyone in the steam car world, and an important contributor through his tireless work as editor of the Steam Car and webmaster for the SCCGB website. He was also a contributor to the Stanley Museum Quarterly and was particularly gracious in helping to promote and advertise the Stanley Museum auction, even lending his expertise in identifying some obscure Lane steamer parts consigned this past summer. I had the please of working with Jeff in putting together a brief "virtual tour" of the Stanley Museum for his website, and I will miss our editorial correspondance. All of us in the steam car community will miss his many contributions, his generosity and his friendship.
