NEWMAN MONEY MUSEUM WEBSITE

The November 13 issue of Coin World featured a nice front-page article
by Jeff Starck on the new Newman Money Museum in St. Louis.  The
article includes some references to earlier E-Sylum submissions by
Eric.  I was pleased to learn in the article that the Museum has its
own informational web site with visiting hours and background on the
various exhibits.  The "Story Behind the Stories Inside" page recounts
the beginning of the collection in 1918, when Eric was seven years
old.  Check out the photo of Eric with his father, Samuel.

As we enter the holiday season, the Coin World photo of the 95-year-old
bow-tied Eric in the Museum's library brings to mind Clarence the Angel
in Frank Capra's classic Christmas film, "It's a Wonderful Life."  Did
I just hear a bell ring?  Take a bow, Eric - you've earned your wings.
