Mata Jaffe

Dr. Mata Barack Jaffe
1936 - 2001

Mata Jaffe passed away at her home in Boca Raton, Florida, on Sunday night,
July 8, 2001. Together with her husband, Arthur, the Jaffes created a
wonderful Book Arts collection of over 3000 volumes. The collection was
donated by the Jaffes to Florida Atlantic University Libraries in 2000, and
they oversaw the building of special facilities to house it. The Jaffes
have been very much involved with the collection at FAU, and the collection
continues to grow. Arthur Jaffe has said that "With Mata came color and
light to the collection." With her passing, the Book Arts community in
South Florida and the rest of the country has lost a vibrant spirit and a
most loyal friend. We shall miss her.
