DWIGHT MANLEY ON FLORENCE SCHOOK

Dwight Manley writes: "Florence Schook opened the doors to an
incredible world of history, friendships and personal growth that
I will forever be thankful.  She was a tireless supporter of young
numismatists, the true future of our hobby.  Mrs. Schook would
stay in our dorms in Colorado Springs during summer seminars, eat
with us, oversee our poker games, sit and enjoy Dan Ratners' piano
skills, watch Mike Fuljenz and "us teenagers" take on the Colorado
College Woman's Basketball Team, and countless other experiences
that she created!

I remember our great appreciation for her YN program, when Cliff
Levy, Keith Love, Dan Ratner, Dan Pressburger, myself, Michael Kohler,
and many others took 10% of every "poker pot" and donated it to Mrs.
Shook's YN program.

Some 20-25 years later, I kept in regular contact with Mrs. Schook.
She'd call and give updates, and ask me to help out with her Senior
Center, which I gladly did.  Her passing really is a big loss for
all past and future young numismatists!

I hope to work with the ANA to create a permanent tribute to her
incredible legacy."
