DOCUMENTATION OF THE 1943 ANA BUSINESS SESSION SOUGHT

Darryl Atchison writes: "I have recently been doing
research on J.D. Ferguson's term as President of the
American Numismatic Association (1941 - 1943) and have
been in touch with numerous collectors to compile information.

"Thanks to David Sklow, I now know that the 1943 (Chicago)
convention was cancelled due to the pressures and demands
of World War II.  However, a three-day business session
was still held and there was even an auction conducted by
William Rayson - although this is considered by some to
be an "unofficial" ANA sale.

"I would like to know, if anyone can tell me, is whether
there an 'official' photograph of the delegates who did
show up for the business sessions and also, was there a
convention program that year - or at least a document
that outlined the itinerary for those in attendance?  I
am sure that there was nothing as elaborate as the 1941
and 1942 programs due to wartime constraints... but I
can't believe that there was nothing at all.  How would
the executives have known when each of the meetings was
supposed to start otherwise?

"If anyone has any information on these questions, I
would appreciate if they would contact me at
atchisondf@gmail.com"
