To all who knew Mel Kavin, CA.
Just received this via different friends.
Mel was a dear man, whom I learn to know attending workshops and classes in his bindery. We are all going to miss him.
I am sure we will hear more about him.

We report with regret the death of Mel Kavin, proprietor of  Kater-Krafts  Bookbindery in Pico Rivera, CA. Mel died quietly at home last  night following  hospitalization for a fall. He was a long-time member of the  Hand Bookbinders of  California and the Guild of Book Workers. Mel was the first to  bring master bookbinders to the United States to demonstrate their art and craft. He has been a staunch friend of the bookbinding community in America and will be greatly  missed. We will publish his obituary as soon as we receive it.
 We send our  sympathy to his son, Bruce Kavin, who carries on the business   that his father began.
