A TRIBUTE TO Q. DAVID BOWERS

Eric Newman writes: "I wrote a poem which was read at the
Q. David Bowers tribute dinner given by the American
Numismatic Society at the Waldorf - Astoria Hotel in New
York City on January 12, 2006. It was read at the event by
Christine Karstadt at my request.  The poem has much
numismatic literary content and so you might wish to
publish it.

Quentin D. Bowers was his original name
But Q. David Bowers was the name it became.

Dave is the author of a library - not just some books.
When doing research, in his own books he looks.

His prolific writings belong on one's shelf -
In their many footnotes he cites himself.

If a picture is worth a thousand words
Then his quantity of pictures would be absurd.

He wrote a huge book on gold for the coffee table;
Its weight caused that furniture to become unstable.

After Bowers and Merena developed auction fame,
Some think it's a shame he sold that name.

Dave is an American numismatic rarity, you see,
Thus he works for American Numismatic Rarities LLC

As a numismatic friend and colleague for over 50 years
I am proud to join you in giving him cheers."
