V3 2000 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 9, February 27, 2000, Article 8

MARCELLA SHELDON, 1911-1999 

   In all of our excitement surrounding the the availability 
   of new online indexes to numismatic reference material, 
   we should not forget the debt we owe those who 
   laid the groundwork with both monetary donations and 
   painstaking manual efforts. 

   An obituary published in the March 6, 2000 issue of 
   COIN World honors Marcella Sheldon, widow of 
   M. Vernon Sheldon and active collector in her own 
   right.  Her "personal card index for the first 40 years 
   of The Numismatist later became the core of the 
   published 50-year index for that American Numismatic 
   Association journal....  Through a series of donations, 
   she put up nearly $25,000 to update the library and its 
   index."
