Unfortunately, I have to inform you of the death of a highly
regarded German AES member and colleague who has contributed a
great deal to our society:
Professor Dr. Ing. Manfred Krause passed away on 2003 August 9,
at the age of 69 years. He was a victim of stomach cancer, and had
found out about it only 4 weeks before the end.
The funeral was on Friday, 2003 August 29, in Berlin.
Krause was a professor for the education of "Tonmeister" at the
Technical University of Berlin. He also served as workshop chairman at
the AES Convention in Berlin in 1993, and has recently been the Project Leader for the AES Historical Committee's "HK Thiele
Archive" project. (I will be working with the University to find a new
home for the HK Thiele Archive of historic papers and recording equipment.)
I have already sent a letter of condolence in the name of the AES

Berlin. Additionally, Dr. Bernhard Feiten, AES member and a former
assistant to Prof. Krause and I will write the "In Memoriam" for the
