Default Harry Neuman- Michigan- anyone remember his collection ?

I used to buy rockets/motors from a gentleman named Harry Neuman in the late 70's through the early 90's.
He lived/lives on the outskirts of Fenton, Michigan.

Wondering if anyone on this forum remembers him or bought kits/motors from his huge collection also ?

I know he used to have enough kits/motors to fill his garage and a large portion of his basement.
Literally would have filled a semi-trailer, and I'm not talking junk pile common Alpha III's either; Pristine old Astron kits, Centuri 1/45 LJII's, Centuri Saturn V's, and all sorts of other goodies.
He had G motors back when those were barely legal; I used to get Composite Dynamics 24mm E20 and F40 motors from him cheap too.

He sold the collaction of kits off in like '92 to a single collector but had lots of motors a few more years if I recall correctly.
Wonder if anyone knows what happened to his collection.
I talked to his son a few times about it as he and I graduated the same year from the same high school and he did not know who they sold to when I asked long ago.

The name rings a bell, must be many years back.

Would have been a LONG time ago.
He completely got out of the hobby in the late 80's/early 90's.
I do know he was an active NAR member from I think the 60's up until that time though.
