FRANK CAMPBELL, HIS PREDECESSORS, AND THE ANS LIBRARY

ANS Fellow Richard Margolis writes: "As a member of the
American Numismatic Society since 1952 I keenly appreciate
what a loss it will be when Frank Campbell, who has been
practically a part of the scenery for half a century, retires.

"Change is often unpleasant, and it will probably be
especially so in Frank's case. Others have commented on
Frank's qualities, and I can only echo them: Frank is modest,
competent, extremely accommodating, an expert on library
science, and an unusually nice human being to boot.

"I would add that the contributions of the two previous ANS
librarians of my acquaintance, Dick Breadon, and Geoff North,
should not be forgotten. To quote the ANS in 2002, when Geoff
died, "Together with Breadon, Geoff undertook a program of
reorganization and upgrading that did much to render the
library the great resource that it is today". Like Frank,
Dick and Geoff were quietly modest, particularly amiable
and capable individuals.

"I am hopeful that Frank's replacement will be able to
adequately fill his oversize shoes, and that he or she will
be selected in time to receive the benefit of some of Frank's
matchless knowledge and decades of experience of the ANS
library, before he departs on his well earned retirement.
One also hopes that as the ANS continues its peregrinations,
due diligence will be paid to insure that the library will
have more than adequate facilities in its latest location."
