HOWARD N. GEISINGER, age 79, died suddenly in his home at Kutztown, Pennsylvania on October 20, 1991. He was the husband of Elda (Adam) Geisinger. Besides his wife he is survived by a daughter, Lillian, wife of Paul Diehl of Trexlertown, Pennsylvania and sons Richard H. and Ray I. both of Kutztown, Pa.

Howard was a co-founder of the Kutztown Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Festival and its historian since 1949. He displayed his engines and demonstrated farm tools and machinery there.

He was a co-founder of the Iron Men Album magazine and contributed many articles of interest to that magazine. He was a charter member and vice president of the Antique Engine Tractor and Toy Club since its beginning.

Howard loved to tinker with his engines at many shows and was always ready to offer advice on matters relating to engines. One could always learn something from Howard. He loved hit and miss engines dearly and owned a fine collection of them.

Howard will be missed by his family and all who ever met him throughout the many activities that he was involved in.
