ANA MEETING HIGHLIGHTS 

   [Editor's note:  it was a pleasure and a delight to see so many 
   E-Sylum subscribers in person at the NBS meetings and 
   throughout the convention this year.   It's always nice to be 
   able to put faces to names, and I was meeting many of you 
   for the first time.  I hope you all enjoyed the NBS events at 
   the show, and the NBS officers and I will look forward to 
   seeing many of you again next year.] 

   About 70 people attended the NBS general meeting on 
   August 11th.  The meeting was called to order by President 
   Wayne Homren.   After the attendees introduced themselves, 
   Vice President Tom Sheehan presented the following awards: 

      BEST ASYLUM ARTICLE OF 1999:  The winner was 
      Joel Orosz, for "Ad Hominem Ad Nauseam: The "Great 
      Debate" Between Michael Hodder & Theodore Buttrey", 
      published in the No. 3 issue.   Balloting was neck-and-neck 
      this year - the runner up by a single vote was  "The 
      Numismatist: The First Six Volumes: Where Are They 
      Now?" by David J. Sklow, also in the No. 3 issue. 
      Congratulations and thanks to our winner and all our 
      Asylum authors. 

      JACK COLLINS AWARD:  The Jack Collins Award for 
      Overall Contribution to Numismatic Literature,  established 
      in 1998, is given on an occasional basis to an individual 
      deemed to have made an important, lasting contribution to 
      the body of numismatic literature.  This year the award was 
      given to William Malkmus, for his long-running efforts to index 
      our journal, The Asylum.  Congratulations, and thanks again 
      for a job well done. 

   An informal auction was held to raise funds for our Society's 
   treasury.  About $1,000 was raised from donations by John 
   W. Adams, George Frederick Kolbe, Tom Sheehan, Bill 
   Swoger, Wayne Homren, Eric Newman, and Myron Xenos. 
   Many thanks to all our donors and bidders, as well as to Brad 
   Karoleff, who volunteered his auctioneering talents to call the 
   sale in professional fashion.  (More details on lots and prices 
   realized next week).
