GEORGE W. WAIT MEMORIAL PRIZE 

   From an SPMC Press Release, provided by Fred Reed: 
   "Society of Paper Money Collectors President Frank Clark 
   reminds researchers and authors that the deadline for the 1st 
   Annual George W. Wait Memorial Prize entries is nearing. 
   Deadline is March 15th.  SPMC instituted the $500 annual 
   award last year to promote the publication of quality new 
   paper money books. 

   The prize is open to researchers and  authors of unpublished, 
   book-length paper money works in any field of paper money 
   or financial documents, or historical or economics works in 
   which the examination of paper money is integral.  Entrants 
   need not be members of the Society to apply.  In addition to 
   the unrestricted $500 grant,  a complimentary membership in 
   SPMC is awarded if the recipient is not already a Society 
   member. 

   The award memorializes and honors the late George W. Wait, 
   an early SPMC President, and a leading proponent of paper 
   money research and publication.  Wait also was the first 
   SPMC Secretary, and the author of two books in SPMC’s 
   landmark Wismer Series which catalogs the obsolete currency 
   of the United States on a state-by-state basis.  Mr. Wait died 
   last April. 

   A “Call for Entries” was published in the November/December 
   issue of the Society’s award-winning bimonthly magazine, Paper 
   Money.  Additional copies of the rules are available for an 
   SASE by writing, Wait Memorial Prize, Dept. N, P.O. Box 
   793941, Dallas, Texas 75379-3941."
