John Luther Prince III
1941 - 2005
John Prince became a avid K&E slide rule collector in about four years. In that time he massed a large collection. He was fascinated with the K&E company and their slide rules. The last we talked in person he fondly remembered the 4053-3 that he used as a beginning student at SMU. He remember how he felt lucky to be able to get a 4181-3 later in college. In his collecting he had an affinity for the very old K&E rules and all of the plastic rules.
John will be missed.
