    THE PROPERTY OF THE LATE DAVID BARTON

    THE PROCEEDS OF THE FOLLOWING LOT WILL BENEFIT EQUALLY SHAARE MEDICAL CENTER AND THE WEIZMANN INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE

    DAVID BARTON 1941-2008


    David Barton's consuming passion was as a stamp collector and he established a formidable reputation amongst his fellow collectors. He was also an avid traveller, while his working life was spent in the field of electronics and later laser technology.
    Additionally David Barton held humanist views, always thinking of those who were less fortunate, hence his wish to gift the proceeds of the sale to the two charities, both of which aim to benefit all humanity.
