FORMER MEDALLIC ART COMPANY PRESIDENT WILLIAM T. LOUTH DIES

Bill Gassman writes: "Bill Louth's system gave up and he passed
away on Friday, November 17. A memorial service will be held at
the Brewster (MA) Baptist Church on Saturday, December 2 at 11 AM."

Just a few weeks ago Dick Johnson interviewed his old boss Bill
Louth of Medallic Art Company and summarized the experience in an
E-Sylum submission.  Louth had been on a first-name basis with most
of the top sculptors and medalists of his day, several of whom
designed U.S. coins, including James and Laura Fraser, Anthony
DeFrancisci, John R. Sinnock and Gilroy Roberts.  We're very sorry
to learn the news, yet quite grateful to Dick for making the effort
to visit Louth and record his numismatic reminiscences.
