Stephen J. Cannon, 69, passed away in November at his home in Palm Springs, California. A veteran of the United States Navy, Cannon volunteered at the Intrepid Museum in New York City and later worked as the archives director at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Ann Massmann, associate professor of librarianship in the Center for Southwest Research and Special Collections, University of New Mexico College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences, died February 24 after a long illness. She joined the Center for Southwest Research in 1995, eventually becoming head of public services for the Anderson Reading Room. Massmann was active in SAA; she served on the Diversity Committee and as chair of the Native American Archives Roundtable, among other groups, and spoke at several SAA annual meetings. Robert Wolfe, 93, passed away in December in Alexandria, Virginia. Wolfe, the son of Jewish immigrants from Lithuania, served in the Army in World War II. Wolfe joined the National Archives in 1961 and emerged as a leader among postwar archivists, cataloguing and copying the millions of military and government documents captured from Adolf Hitler’s Germany. Wolfe remained at the National Archives until his retirement in 1995. Richard Breitman, a Holocaust scholar at American University, described Wolfe as a “critical factor in the evolution of research on Nazi Germany in the United States.”
