ARD W. BROWNING ANA PILGRIMAGE PLANNED 

   Carl Herkowitz of Detroit has been researching the life of 
   Ard W. Browning, author of the classic 1925 work, "The 
   Early Quarter Dollars of the United States".   On Thursday, 
   August 10th, about 9-9:30am, Mr. Herkowitz will lead a 
   group of interested bibliophiles and collectors on a trip to 
   a churchyard about 45 miles from the Philadelphia convention 
   center.  The group will pay their respects at the final resting 
   place of Browning, and hear an advance reading of Herkowitz' 
   forthcoming article detailing his research. 

   Browning was a long-running numismatic mystery.  In his 
   1992 book "American Numismatic Literature". Charles 
   Davis wrote: "The author is one of the most invisible 
   personages of American numismatics, leaving no personal 
   trace of the history of this work, which some feel was 
   completed long before its 1925 publication by Wayte 
   Raymond." 

   Mr. Herkowitz can be reached at the convention by paging 
   him to the Message Center, or keeping an eye out for him 
   at Charles Davis' table.  The trip is open to all interested 
   parties.
