The E-Sylum: Volume 3, Number 4, January 23, 2000, Article 4


The Fall 1999 Museum newsletter of the American Numismatic Society includes these notes of interest to bibliophiles:

"… the Society had received the numismatic library of the late Charles A. Hersh, a collection which reflects Mr. Hersh's own interests, namely, the Roman Republican coinage and the coinage of the Macedonian kings."

The following note may be of interest to U.S. collectors:

"In closing his report on acquisitions, the Librarian mentioned that the Society had just received the Garrett Numismatic Archives, an outstanding donation about which he would have more to say at a later date."

Could this be the archives of the Garretts of Baltimore, MD stored at Evergreen House? The archives were discussed in The E-Sylum v2#35, August 27, 1999, after Michael Berkman described his visit there. At the time, it was suggested by some that the archives be donated intact to an organization such as the ANS, rather than allowing them to be destroyed or dispersed.
