ON ANDREW AND GEORGE ZABRISKIE

In response to Len Augsberger's query about the relationship between Andrew and George Zabriskie, Kay O. Freeman writes:
Andrew Christian Zabriskie (born May 30, 1853, NYC - died Sept. 15, 1916, Barrytown, NY) was President of the American Numismatic and Archaeological Society for 10 years, resigning in 1905. His New York Times obituary says "all his life ... was a collector of coins and medals, and owned one of the best collections in this country, in which there are many rare Lincoln medals and many rare Polish coins and medals. He was also a collector of books and prints related to the early history of New York." His business was real estate.

George Albert Zabriskie (born Dec. 7, 1868, NYC/NJ - died Jan. 3, 1954, Ormond Beach, Florida) was President of the New-York Historical Society May 1939 to Jan. 1947, when he was made an honorary President. Pillsbury Flour Mills was his business affiliation.

There is no familial relation except sharing a Polish ancestor who emigrated to America in the 17th century - and/or intermarriages with other old, historic, New Jersey and NY families. There are several men with similar names; but these are the pertinent ones. Also, in both cases, the generations reverse the first and middle names.


Many thanks to Kay for following up on this query, which was spurred by a note on the American Numismatic Society web site stating that Andrew Zabriskie once tried to merge the ANS and the N-YHS. -Editor


Joe Ciccone of the ANS writes:
In this summer's issue of the ANS Magazine I have an article which provides details of Andrew Zabriskie's effort to merge the ANS with the New-York Historical Society.
