I have heard so much about this man Pierre Schwaar. I'm sorry I never got the opportunity to know him. Sounds like he made an impact on a lot of people. And I'd wager that it wasn't just those travelling in astronomy circles.

Benson, AZ 85602 hm ph: 520-586-2244 It's hard to believe that Pierre has been gone 9 years and that I am now about a year or two older than he was when he died... Thanks for the reminding us of him, Jennifer! Pierre was a really great guy, generous and innovative within his limited financial means. I knew him when he lived in Tucson and working for LearJet in the early 70's. When I moved to southern California I looked forward to seeing him at the annual RTMC in Big Bear. Does anybody know whatever happened to his good friend, Martin? We think of Pierre whenever we see a thin crescent moon. My wife, Arlene, calls it a "Pierre Moon" since he was always chasing the young moon and later on, I understand, he chased the very old moon, too.
