Henry O. Forrest, APSA, PPSA, NJFC passed away August 20, 2010 after eight years of disability at age 86. Henry was a charter member, who was quite active in the Teaneck Camera Club for decades. He chaired the Teaneck International with five divisions until his wife took over for only two of them. Henry being a charter member of Box 54, auxiliary to the fire department, was able to avail himself of many fire pictures. He was also a superb model photographer. Henry, naturally, had an exemplary record in PSA’s Photojournalism Division due to the multiple fire related PICS as well as galaxy rating in Color Slides.
