FRANK KATEN 

   This extra edition of The E-Sylum brings more sad news. 
   Longtime numismatic bookseller and NBS member Frank 
   Katen of Silver Spring, MD died  yesterday, January 21st. 
   According to his wife, Laurese Katen, "Frank passed away 
   on his 98th birthday very peacefully."   George Kolbe 
   reports:  "Frank Katen's funeral services are on Wednesday, 
   January 24th at Hines-Rinaldi Funeral Home, New Hampshire 
   Avenue, Silver Spring MD." 

   Frank was "the dean of American numismatic bibliophiles," 
   noted Julian Leidman.  His sales of numismatic literature 
   spawned many a collector, and some dealers as well. 

   Tom Fort, editor of our print journal, The Asylum, asks that 
   reminiscences be sent to him for publication in an upcoming 
   issue.  Tom can be reached at this email address:
