"Like others, I have read Keppler since the early 70s while he was still with Modern Photograpy. I was chagrined when all of a sudden he disappeared from its pages (maybe I missed an announcement), but soon learned that he had moved to Popular Photography, as I then did in terms of subscriptions. Again, like others, his was the first column/article that I turned to when a new issue arrived. When he wrote about an issue relevant to me at the time I took it as gospel since it was not filled with the normal obligatory superlatives, but with the raw facts, both good and bad. I knew that I could depend on what he was saying. And I too received personal responses from him to questions/issue that I addressed to him. Although my more recent queries were sent via email, he continued his hard copy responses. With his passing so passes an era in photography. I will miss his presence immensely."
