SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: WENDELL WOLKA
With this issue we introduce a new occasional feature of the
The E-Sylum: Subscriber Profiles. These are short articles
describing the background and/or collecting interests of our
readers. Wendell Wolka of Ohio is our first profilee:
Wendell Wolka collects a wide range of numismatic and non-
numismatic items, including things as diverse as wire service
photos of pre-WW2 commercial airliner crashes and medals of
Martin Luther and the Protestant reformation. Closer to home,
he collects obsolete bank notes from Indiana and Ohio, colored
proof notes, and notes of France and the French colonies.
Numismatic literature interests center on antebellum state and
federal reports, letters, counterfeit detector publications, bank
documents, and just about anything else related to state banking
prior to the end of the Civil War in Indiana and Ohio. A recent
passion is an attempt to fill in a complete run of Bankers
Magazine up to 1865.
