REMEMBRANCES OF HAL DUNN

Tony Tumonis writes: "I was stunned to hear of the unexpected
passing of my friend Hal Dunn.  Hal was not only an ANA District
Delegate for Nevada, but also received the ANA Outstanding District
Delegate Award in 2002.  Hal will be sorely missed by everyone that
knew him."

Pete Smith writes: "My parents taught me that I should not talk to
strangers. I think of myself as an introvert who is unlikely to
strike up a conversation with a stranger. However, I suspect that
extroverts meet more interesting people so I will occasionally
make an exception.

During the 1996 ANA convention in Denver, I stood outside my hotel
waiting for a shuttle bus to take me to the convention center.
Standing nearby was a somewhat stern looking gentleman. Perhaps
he looked like a county sheriff. Anyway, I asked him if he was going
to the ANA convention and we talked until the bus came. He was Hal
Dunn. I recognized his name as an author so our conversation became
an interview.

I think it was later that same day that I was giving a talk at
the Numismatic Theatre and he came to listen. He told me later that
he came only because he had met me earlier. We had a number of
common interests.

I met him again at other conventions. We were both ANA District
Delegates so we attended some of the same meetings. We corresponded
by letter about some memorabilia from the Carson City Mint. We also
corresponded by e-mail, most recently comparing our experiences
with the state quarter design process and ceremonies.

Despite his appearance, I found him to be quite warm and willing
to share his information and experiences. I was sorry to learn of
his passing."
