J. HEWITT JUDD: BREEN COLLABORATION, LIBRARY, EXHIBITS

Regarding last week's request for information about J. Hewitt Judd,
Dick Johnson writes: "J(ohn) Hewitt Judd and Walter Henry Breen did
indeed work together on the pattern book, a classic in its time.
During a coin convention in Omaha I was invited to Dr. Judd's home.
Walter had been there before then.  The number "two" sticks in my mind,
but whether it was two weeks or two months I cannot recall now. The
numismatists worked together for that length of time.  Walter lived
with the Judds during that period, so it was a close collaboration.
The spectacular collection was kept in cabinets on both sides of
the basement family room."

George Kolbe writes: "Joel Malter purchased Judd's notable numismatic
library and much of it was identified as such when Joel's library was
sold this past June. Judd collected ancient Greek coins. I am not sure
about the disposition of the American component, though, years ago, I
bought Dr. Judd's complete set of the American Journal of Numismatics
from Joel."

about Joel Malter and the sale of his library.  -Editor]

Steve Dippolito writes: "J. Hewitt Judd also won the ANA best-of-show
award in 1949, the first year I can find reference to that award,
although at the time it had not yet been named the Howland Wood award.
(The first year it was so named was 1951, and it was won by R. S. Yeoman
of Red Book fame.)  The ANA has a page on Thomas Law which claims that
he and one other person (not named, but presumably Jean Bullen) were
the only multiple winners of the Howland Wood, apparently leaving out
J. Hewitt Judd.  I would guess that in researching that page, they only
looked at awards since 1951, but to my way of thinking the substance of
the award is more important than its name.  (This page was quoted in
the Coin World obituary for Thomas Law.)"
