Nine months after James, in February 2008, Stamp Magazine, in its January 2009 issue, announced the disappearance of his brother Ron last November.
James Negus was a specialist of philatelic edition and bibliographic research, and of the souvenirs published at British philatelic exhibitions.
Ron organised the Royal Philatelic Society London archives and became then its "honorary archivist". He collected Poland.
Both were prolific authors for the philatelic press, generalist and specialised alike.
