  '''Mr. Edsel James was in the first generation of serious (pre-Loring) Dunhill collectors.'''
 
  Mr. Edsel James was not simply a pipe collector or a salesman, he was an endearing anachronism and reminder of a different time in our cultural history, Known by many affectionate aliases such as Mr. Dunhill, a curmudgeon, Captain Dot Head, and just plain ole Edsel, he was a unique character in an industry in dire need of such. A fellow pipe smoker who has spent the better part of his life both enjoying and promoting our wonderful hobby.<ref name=edsel>Uptown’s, Smoke Shop (2005). Collector’s Highlight - Spotlight on Edsel James (slightly adapted text. See original [https://pipedia.org/images/b/b9/UPTOWN_1.pdf here]).</ref>
