The NGS conference is a great place to meet some of the most fascinating people. One of those I met in 2009 was Harvey Wolf of Wolf’s Head Books. For the 2009 conference I was one of the people responsible for the vendor area.
was a bright spot
amongst the requests for power, services, tables, chairs, complaints and much more! Harvey
We talked about food! Specifically barbecue! He was polling around the vendor area for those of us living in
to figure out which place had the
best barbecue so he could go eat there! Though he didn’t think the local establishment
he tried lived up to the hype, he was the one person I looked forward to
talking with each day! He made sitting
at my table “fun” for the duration of the conference. Raleigh
I was sad to learn, less than a year later, that
had died. Read his obituary here. Harvey
And, now, I’ve learned that Wolf’s Head Books is closing. Read the Sunshine Slate article.
Some people just touch your life and
was one of them! His energy, passion and
enthusiasm will not be forgotten. Harvey
