     A card recently received from Vitorio, Spain, showing a picture of Heraclio Alfaro Fournier seated in a monoplane, states that he died in Vitorio, Spain on August 10, 1962. He was a member of the Early Birds for many years. The necessary correction will be made in the next issue of the membership list.
From The Early Birds of Aviation CHIRP, December, 1964, Number 71.
