Alan D. Burnham (Warbird)
« on: May 21, 2021, 08:45:01 PM »
With sadness I have to report that fellow forum member and Mauser HSc guru Alan Burnham passed away.

He was known under the forum name 'Warbird'.

I was fortunate to be able to print and publish his wonderful HSc book in Europe (written with his co-author Peter Theodore).Trying to get in touch to discuss a new printing run and found out he had passed away late 2020.

I consider him a giant in our forum.   I will miss his greatly.   We all will.

Vlim, I only know Alan by his book and the messages on this forum. Can you tell us more about him? Thanks Dave

Late comer here and just learning of this.  I am deeply saddened to learn of Alan's passing.  I concur 100% with Jcorl.  Was coming on to look up old info on phosphate HScs.  Given my primary interest in the HSc Alan's loss is devastating.

Has anyone made contact with Peter to know if he has access to Alan's extensive data base?  Is anyone taking this over?
Still in shock on this one.
Will miss his friendly, courteous and informed exchanges.

I spoke with Peter. We both have tried to reach  out to Alan's son but with no success until now.
