A CLUB WITHOUT OFFICERS  

    Randolph Zander, in Part 3 of his Numismatic  
    Reminiscences article published in the last Asylum,  
    describes Ray Byrne as "a joyous collector - He  
    enjoyed his subject, and he certainly enjoyed  
    numismatic company - he founded the Pittsburgh 
    Sphinx club - a meeting of serious coin people 
    [ even if you called them sphincters]..."  

    The Sphinx Society lives on, and I've been glad to  
    be a member for several years now.  It's a model  
    that serious collectors might consider emulating  
    in other cities.  It is a club without officers: no  
    committees, no reading of the minutes, no anything  
    except numismatic fellowship.  The group meets  
    monthly at a local restaurant; members take turns  
    hosting the meeting and giving an informal talk on  
    a numismatic subject - always a relaxing and  
    enjoyable evening.
