MORE ON GUTTAG RESEARCH

Karl Kabelac writes: "For research on the Guttag Brothers, Robert
Rightmire may want to consult Proquest Historical Newspapers which
has the New York Times, key word searchable from 1851 on.  He could
probably find it available in an academic library.

Searching the terms Guttag Brothers, Julius Guttag, and Henry Guttag
turns up a number of entries over the decades, including their
obituaries.

I have always used Proquest Historical Newspapers at the University
of Rochester Library.  But at the very head of the New York Times
homepage one can key word search the newspaper, 1851-1980 or 1981
onward.  One then has to pay to get the full text for the headlines
that come up, either by the article ($4.95), by the month (up to
100 articles for $7.95), or by the year (up to 1200 articles for
$49.95)."

[Thanks for the suggestion. Last week we weren't sure Julius even
HAD a brother - now we know his name!  The obituaries ought to
reveal a great deal.  The Times archive is also available via a
two-week trial subscription through the newspaper's web site.

Leon Worden writes: "Thanks for including Dick Johnson's information
about the Guttag Brothers.  Abe Kosoff makes a number of anecdotal
references to the Guttag Brothers in the book, "Abe Kosoff Remembers,"
which is really a compendium of his Coin World columns.

Incidentally, I learned of the existence of "Abe Kosoff Remembers"
in the E-Sylum, and I'm glad I did. It reads like a personal diary
of some exciting decades in numismatic history, and fortunately,
it's indexed."

Bob Rightmire writes: "Since you first posted my inquiry on the
Guttag Bros., I had some excellent help and advice from several
numismatists. Dick Johnson has lead the way with both information
and some solid leads. Your copies of Guttag's Coin Bulletin yielded
several facts about their business.

I have learned that there is a picture postcard of the Guttag
building at 42 Stone St., New York City (ca. 1930). Has anyone
seen this postcard?

The suggestion that I check the NY Times for references to the
Guttag Bros. has been expedited by the Times' Select program which
allows subscribers to download up to 100 entries, from 1851 to the
present, per month.

I'm currently looking for leads to Louis Guttag's children Alvin,
Evelyn  and Erma Frank (as of Mar. 29, 1972)."
