Joe Kane Library

The Joe Kane Memorial Churchill Library

The late Joe Kane was a board member from way back, a raconteur, journalist, and man of letters who passed away at the age of 84.  He donated his library of Churchill books and other historic works to our chapter.  Jan Slimming has kindly organized the library and it can be accessed at:

at our second meeting ever in 2004

Joe is in full journalist mode with notepad and pen listening to RAF Battle of Britain veteran Flt. Lt. Denis Payne of Avondale Estates.

Joe was a graduate of Georgetown University.  He was retired from Time-Warner and was their last bureau chief in Atlanta.  He interviewed folks from President Carter to Jane Fonda and all sorts in between.. He also was Pentagon correspondent during the fall of Saigon. He was a great friend and helped organize many events over the years.  We will miss his quick wit, ready laugh, and booming voice.
