Arnold Quittner 1927-2014

Arnold Quittner passed away on November 4, 2014.  He was one of the bankruptcy giants of our time.  Info about the services can be accessed here.

There is a very nice interview of Arnold by Judge Randall Newsome for the National Bankruptcy Archives on October 28, 2011.  You can access that here.  I believe the tapes are kept at Penn, called the Oral History Collection.  My son Hunter and I went through the library at Penn a year or so ago and tried to find the collection.  No one at the library knew what we were talking about.
