From IOBA President Joachim Koch:
There’s many different reasons for being a member of the IOBA. One of them is the opportunity to share knowledge and to learn from others. As one way of fostering a learning environment for our member booksellers, the IOBA has been offering scholarships for some of the best institutions in the trade.
On behalf of the IOBA Scholarship Committee, chaired this year by Vice-President Howard Prouty, I am honored to announce this year’s recipients of an IOBA scholarship:
Bay Leaf Used & Rare Books
9 E. Lake
PO Box 105
Sand Lake, MI 49343
Champ & Mabel Collectibles
PO Box 741
San Pedro, CA 90733-0741
Both winners have chosen to use the $1,500 scholarship to attend this year’s Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar. The only regret that the Committee had was that they could not make an award to each of this year’s field of applicants.
Congratulations to Gayle and Gabe. We wish both of you a great time in Colorado!
