In Memoriam: C. Peter Scanlan

January 4, 2012

We note with deep sadness the untimely passing on February 3, 2012 of Pete Scanlan of Albany, New York. Pete was a regular at East coast political collector shows, as well as a ongoing exhibitor, together with business partner Dennis Holzman, at Papermania in Hartford and the Ephemera Society annual show in Old Greenwich. He was a book dealer in Albany whose collecting interest centered on Theodore Roosevelt, with whom he shared an uncanny resemblance. His easy-going, laid back personality endeared him to all. A true bon-vivant and dedicated hobbyist, he will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.
