Sad news, indeed ...
"[I] would ask you to pay a debt of respect to this honor-
able man (perhaps over a Franconia collection piece)."
Bleacher L.V. et al. (2005) Meteorites from the Franconia, Arizona area:
Observations and summary of petrographic characteristics (36th Lunar
and Planetary Science Conference, abstract #1807, CD-ROM, excerpt):
"The Franconia meteorite was discovered in a dry wash in Mojave County,
Arizona, USA, by John P. Wolfe on October 31, 2002. The original find,
located without use of a metal detector, consisted of one specimen weighing
approximately 4.75 kg. The specimen was classified by Alan Rubin at UCLA
as an H ordinary chondrite (H5, S3, W2)."
