Past New England Division Director Milton E. Chaffee, W1EFW, of
Southington, Connecticut, died April 8, 1996. Milt was 83. He served
as director from 1957 through 1964. Milt was a long-time ARRL member
and official, and served in many League capacities, including
assistant section manager and section traffic manager in
Connecticut.  He was an active CW and traffic enthusiast. He also
served on the QCWA board of directors.

Connecticut Section Manager Betsey Doane, K1EIC, called Milt's
passing ''the end of an era.'' ARRL Executive Vice President David
Sumner, K1ZZ, added: ''Milt was a stalwart traffic handler who set
and maintained the standards for the rest of us for more than 40
years.''

A memorial service for Milt Chaffee is set for Sunday, April 14, 1
PM, at The First Congregational Church, Route 10, Southington,
Connecticut. A reception will follow.
