ANA NBS MEETING
The general meeting of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society was held at 6:30 PM Friday, August 13th. About 40 people attended. Nawana Britenriker, ANA Librarian, reported on the ANA Oral History Project & book preservation work at the library. Audible gasps were heard when she reported that $600 had been spent on restoring a copy of A.M. Smith's
Visitors Guide to the U.S. Mint. The funds had been donated by the Women In Numismatics (WIN) group and were earmarked for this specific volume, which had seen much use and abuse over the years.
Dr. Ute Wartenberg, ANS Executive Director, gave us a virtual tour of the new ANS Headquarters and Library Facilities, which should give their library 30 years' worth of expansion room.
Finally, John Burns recounted some stories of visits to the numismatic libraries of Armand Champa, Frank Katen, and others, including the infamous five-pound meatball prank played on John by Armand (see the Money Tree's "Out on A Limb" for the full story and picture).
