A former Marine Corps officer and a practicing attorney in NYC for 57 years, Mark was an avid collector of high quality models, chiefly liners, and over the years developed close personal relationships and friendships with many model producers, dealers and collectors, both in the US and overseas. Mark was a frequent visitor to Munich as well as a charter member of the SMSC, and served on the Board of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Museum, where he was among those who were instrumental in the Museum's acquisition of the Menschaar collection of Heinrich and Noordzee models. He helped initiate the SMSC's ongoing partnership with the museum and contributed several of his own models to the ongoing "CONVOY" exhibit there, now in its eighth year.
Mark was a kind, knowledgeable, generous and helpful gentleman who will be sadly missed.
