Last year I talked over the phone to both his wife and his oldest son (who
both live here in Denmark) - and I can't imagine that they would object to any
use of his material or photos. He himself was always helpful - and always gave
permission for others to use his material.
But if anybody, are using his material (or naming a award after him) then
please don't bo it without informing his family. I think that it's important
that they know, that he and his work is by no means forgotten by us!!

That's completely right. I have just recently received the original
correspondence between TFH and Scheel. And it's clearly stated that all the
photos are non-exclusive.
