    Yes he responded very quickly. I asked him a question about a Four Hundred and he was very generous with his knowledge. He also mentioned that he is out of the hobby. Many sad faces.

    Bruce Harris was a well regarded pipe collector who displayed his very impressive Marxman figural collection at shows back in the day. I believe he wrote some articles in The Ephemeris too.

    @pipestud didn't you sell his collection a couple of years back?

    Dave -- those things aren't mutually exclusive. Do you know if the cigrmaster Harris and the figural collector Harris the same person?

    Thanks for clarifying.

    I'd wondered.

    Yes sir. When Bruce got out of the hobby I dispersed his collection. And it was truly an outstanding one.

    Wow, confusing thread. To clarify... Bruce Harris and cgrmaster Harris are not the same. Cgrmaster Harris has been busy with a new girlfriend, I believe. The other has written articles for SP and has given up the hobby. ...as I interpret the thread. Is this correct?

    Sad on both accounts.

    I always find it interesting on how collectors so devoted to the hobby for most of their lives just kinda give it all up.

    Wow, confusing thread.

    I can see the confusion - since I did link to an article by Bruce Harris. I guess if anyone asks for an email to Petersons, Pete Townsend or Peter Pan I can expect the same confusion?

    Looks like everything is all cleared up now so hopefully this will now get buried.

    Oh no, it never gets completely cleared up. We will all be hearing about Cgrmaster's funeral soon, and the real bantering will begin as we all fight over his Rad collection and cellar. Peck will deliver an elegant written eulogy. Then Cgr Harris will come back and be like, "WTF?"

    In fact, we should just go ahead and start a new thread for condolences to Cgrmaster Harris. I'd hate it if we didn't say our goodbyes properly.

    Yes, we should all pack a bowl full of Lakelands and puff away in his honor. :::sniff sniff::: He really did love those Lakelands.

    :::sniff::: Maybe we could GH&co to make a really strong flavored lakeland in his honor.
