TWO GREAT REFERENCES ON MEDALS: MARQUESEE COLLECTION, BEAUX ARTS

Scott Miller writes: "With regard to Dave Bowers and Dick Johnson's
remarks regarding the need for catalogues of US medals, there are
two books that should be mentioned as worthwhile and easily available.
'One Hundred Years of American Medallic Art 1845-1945, the John E.
Marqusee Collection' lists over 400 medals.  'The Beaux-Arts Medal
in America' by Barbara Baxter, published by the American Numismatic
Society discusses American medals of that period, as well as French
and other European influences.

"I would also be interested in any update on Dick's planned
Biographical Dictionary of American Medalists."

[I have both of Scott's recommendations in my library.  Agreed - these
are both great books.  As for Dick Johnson’s BDAM, it's not quite ready
for publication.  But he writes: “In the meantime I offer a service to
numismatic researchers to do a lookup and answer most questions about
American medallists, or medals by known artists. If inquirer wants a
listing of all the works by one artist, I do make a small charge for
these. Long entries, like Victor D. Brenner of 50-page length, for
example, would be $10 or less. Contact:  dick.johnson@snet.net."
