I just received an email from Chuck Haberlein, formerly of the Navy Historical Center Photographs division, that Don Montgomery passed away earlier this month
. He retired as the Head Photo Accessionist at the Defense AV Agency
after more than 25 years, and he had spent a fair amount of time at the archives. Those of us who spent time in 80-G came to recognize his handwritten corrections and additions to the caption cards there. I ran in to him twice and found him accommodating and interesting to be around each time. I wish I had more opportunities to learn from his experiences.
It is fair to say that he touched perhaps all of our lives in some way with the research and work he did in his lifetime other than Phil Gollin's.
