Sad to report that Fred Bruhn, an active early member of the Carbine Club, passed away on 7 October from cancer, at age 76. Fred was an energetic, productive, and very intelligent individual who served as Editor and Administrative Director of the Carbine Club, beginning in about 1981. He was also a talented illustrator, and prior to the electronic/computer/digital camera age, nearly all of the drawings and illustrations in the newsletters were hand-drawn by Fred. He was a great communicator and was always willing to go out of his way to help club members find the carbines or parts that they needed.

A member of the Ohio Gun Collectors Association, he organized semi-annual get-togethers of the Carbine Club members at the Columbus show in the 1980s, and those weekends were always great fun and great learning experiences for carbine collectors.

His friendship, his organizational skills, his hard work, his dedication to the Carbine Club and his good-natured personality will always be remembered. Unfortunately, he had suffered from cancer for the last several years. R.I.P.
