Nathan Gluck, 1918 – 2008

In memory of our kind, gentle and creative friend who died over the weekend in San Diego – We’ll miss his visits by train, his concern about our well-being, his holiday phone calls, presence and presents; his drawings, paintings and collages, which arrived in the mail without fail for every New Year, birth and anniversary. . . We’ll miss his kindness, his wisdom, his worldliness.

Nathan was one of the last of an era. G’luck, Nathan Gluck! – GF + TA + family

I just heard the news from San Diego of Nathan's passing.
He was a great guy and full of so much color.
He was a true New Yorker on many levels. I will miss him.

Our community has never had a friend as gentle, and kind, who welcomed so many young designers, and started us on the path to preserve our history. What a gift we had.

I was really sorry to hear that dear Nathan is no longer with us in this world. A wonderful human being who nourished my every visit to NYC.
Though continents apart, he constantly cared and watched out for me as I tried to navigate the design universe. I'll always remember his compassion, generosity and how gently he tread, like his most miniscule carbon footprint.
You will be sadly missed, amigo.

A kinder, gentler soul I have never met. From our days together at AIGA, a memorable few weeks with Nathan when he visited us while we lived in Paris (you can imagine what a unique experience it was to travel and see Paris through Nathan's eyes), his visits to Westchester, and lunches in the city, his special gifts and goodies, I treasure each moment spent with him. It was always special. I am happy my three boys were able to know Nathan as well and gain from his unique perspective and limitless knowledge. Dear friend, you will be sorely missed.
