Light-bulb collector extraordinaire has died

An MD who collected 60,000 lightbulbs and operated the Mount Vernon Museum of Incandescent Lighting has died.

Not infrequently, patients had to wait as he welcomed people interested in seeing what he identified as the biggest and smallest light bulbs in the world � to say nothing of the floodlights used in an Elvis Presley movie or the headlamps from Hitler’s Mercedes-Benz.
