Ben Weiss of the Medal Collectors of America (MCA) forwarded the following announcement of the latest installment of the club's Oral History of Medallic Art. -Editor As some of the readers of The E-Sylum may know, the Medal Collectors of America (MCA) has recently begun a series of Oral Histories of Medallic Art where we record extensive interviews of prominent members of the community in the field of Medallic Art.
The latest such interview was done by MCA President John Adams and MCA Vice-President John Sallay who interviewed Eric P. Newman, longtime collector and author specializing in Early American numismatics. In this hour-long interview (in two parts) Eric discusses his early years as a collector, his relationship with Burdette G. Johnson, their purchase of much of the Col. Edward H. R. Green collection, and his more recent activities with his numismatic foundation and museum. This oral interview as well as others are posted on the MCA website
