In Memoriam:
A sorrowful Museum project is keeping a list of modelers who have passed on. By keeping such a list, we can remember and honor those who are no longer with us. 

The Museum has assembled a list of hobbyists known to have passed away since 1976. If you can supplement this list, please write to the Museum with details. This list is updated, and read at the Awards Banquet of each GSL International Model Car Championship:
