Kingston Lapidary & Mineral Club

   Julius was born in Flushing, N.Y., on April 29, 1900. He began his interest in rocks in 1957 as a member of the Arlington Gem & Mineral Club in Arlington, Texas. He was a tool inspector with Chance Vought Aircraft. Julius was a perfectionist. It had to be done right or not at all. He began producing intarsias in the early 1960's, one of America's pioneers in that field. His biggest regret was that he could not enter the American Federation of Mineralogical Society shows, since at that time there was no category for his type of work. Julius passed away on November 2, 1970.
