FEATURED WEB SITE: AMERICAN VECURIST ASSOCIATION

This week's featured web site is the Wikipedia entry
for the American Vecurist Association, which has some
interesting information about the history of the standard
workS on transportation tokens:

"In 1920, Mr. F.C. Wentworthy began cataloging his
transportation token collection. Five years later, Mr
Wentworthy handed his work off to Mr. R.W. Dunn. In 1932
Mr. Dunn printed his list of U.S. and foreign transportation
tokens. Shortly after printing, Dr. Dunn passed the task of
cataloging transportation tokens off to Ronald C. Atwood.
In 1948, Mr. Atwood had his National Check and Premium List
of All U.S. Transportation Tokens published by the American
Numismatic Company of Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Mr. R.L. Moore began publishing the Fare Box, a
monthly newsletter about transportation tokens. On October
31, 1948, the American Vecturist Association was formed in
New York City out of interest sparked from Mr. Moore's
newsletter. Two months later, Mr. Moore turned over the Fare
Box to the newly formed American Vecturist Association."
