    Sad news.

    "Woodbury, NY, January 5, 2008— It is with a great sense of loss that
    Photo Industry Reporter announces that Herbert Keppler, a
    photo-imaging publishing pioneer, editor, and mentor, died peacefully
    last night following a brief illness in a Westchester, New York,
    hospital. His family—wife, Louise; daughter, Kathy; and son, Tom—were
    at his side.

    “Burt,” as friends knew him, was one of the most revered, respected
    and beloved members of the photographic community. One of the original
    columnists for Photo Industry Reporter when it was founded 16 years
    ago, his column, The Way It Is, was one of the publication’s most-read
    features. Burt was a positive force who helped advance the industry he
    loved, a thought-provoking guru for millions of amateur photographers,
    and a practical camera design and marketing genius whose advice was
    sought after and implemented by manufacturers, distributors and
    retailers.

    Over the span of his 57-year career, Herbert Keppler was probably best
    known to photo enthusiasts for his 37 years at Modern Photography
    magazine, rising through the ranks to the positions of editorial
    director and publisher, as well as his 20-year tenure with Popular
    Photography, where he was vice president and publishing director, and
    where he amassed fans worldwide, both among readers and industry
    colleagues."

    His was a voice of sanity amid the technoholic cacophony.
