NEW YORK TIMES Charles Rahn Fry, Pochoir Collector, 47 OBITUARY Published: September 15, 1990 ( see above, Images of Interiors)

"Charles Rahn Fry, a bibliophile and collector of pochoir, a colored stenciling process that flourished in France at the turn of the century, died on Wednesday at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He was 47 years old and lived in Manhattan. A spokesman for the center said Mr. Fry had died of leukemia.

He was a founding member of the Lenox Society of the New York Public Library and a fellow of the Morgan Library. He collected more than 4,000 images of pochoir, the largest such assemblage in the world.

Mr. Fry was born in Greenville, Ohio, and was a graduate of Princeton.

He is survived by his father, Charles, of Springfield, Ohio; a brother, Robin, of Westfield, N.J., and two sisters, Beatrice Darre of Cincinnati and Marmee Spray, of Taos, N.M."
