Mat Collins Dead
M. H. Collins, Sales Manager, Louisville branch, Rensselaer Valve Company, died at Louisville, Ky., on November 15. He suffered a serious attack about the middle of October, but was reported to be improving at the time the Southwest Section convention was held at Dallas.
Mr. Collins was in his early seventies, and joined the Rensselaer Valve Company organization on January 14, 1909. His work brought him in contact with many in the fire field who became his loyal friends. He attended practically every I.A.F.C. meeting that occurred within the territory under his jurisdiction as well as many in other parts of the United States.
