    Peter Andresen passed away peacefully on February 20th in San Francisco at age 79.

    Peter had been an active member of OMSA for decades and attended many conventions and other events dealing with medal collecting.

    His long-term interest dealt mainly with medals issued during the China 1900 Boxer Rebellion Campaign. His special interest was in the study of the Military Order of the Dragon Society, in which he collected many fine examples.

    Peter also had an avid interest in collecting medals to the Eighth Air Force and made many trips to England to further that study.

    Peter will be missed by his many friends at OMSA and in the UK.

    Peter is survived by his loving wife, Jean, son, Christian, stepdaughter, Sara, and four grandchildren.

    His son, Christian, who many of you may have met over the years, can be reached at :candresen@gmail.com
