Victor Heyman Dies
January 9, 2009
Victor Heyman has died in Florida at age 72. Along with his wife Reba, Victor has been a long-time supporter of folk music - as a concert promoter and presenter and as a board member for organizations including Kerrville. But really, the Heyman's are true supporters of folk music and musicians, going out of their way to help artists succeed. For years, they compiled lists of all of the official and non-official workshops at Folk Alliance and they gave musicians a cut rate on mailing schedules and newsletters through their bulk mailing company. Other interesting things I learned about Victor from his obit in the Washington Post - he was a deputy assistant secretary of defense, he taught political science and he was a noted consultant on health care issues. He will be missed.
