MILFORD - “He never thought of himself as an artist,” Bill Kiger told his audience Friday evening, but others did and “his spirited resounded with others and that’s the ultimate test,” Kiger said of the late Arthur Siegel. Siegel, a lawyer, photographer and founder of the Pike County Courier amongst his many interests, was honored posthumously as Pike County Arts and Crafts dedicated their 56th annual exhibition to him. “He had a lot of interests and a lot of passion,” Kiger told an audience including his widow, Miriam Siegel.
