- Existence: 1956 (date of birth) - 2017 (date of death) - 2017
Tom (Thomas C.) Klopp was born in Portsmouth, Ohio on July 1, 1956. As a teenager, he enjoyed helping out in his mother's antique shop. His interest and expertise in glass extended beyond the family shop, as Klopp edited several glass reference books in the 1980s. Klopp also served as the editor of _Glass Collector_ and wrote several articles for glass collectors. He appears to have been most interested in 19th and early 20th century American pressed glass.
