The American Numismatic Association has published the
schedule for the upcoming convention in Philadelphia. The
full schedule is posted on the ANA's web site at:
Not a "Great Debate" or even a not-so-great debate
anywhere on the agenda... Still, there will be several events
of interest to numismatic bibliophiles and researchers:
NBS activities include our annual general meeting, which will
take place at 11:30 AM in Room 201C of the Convention
Center. More details in future issues.
NBS will also host a Numismatic Literature Symposium.
Moderated by NBS Board member Dr. Joel Orosz, the
symposium will be held on Friday, August 11, from 2 pm to
3:30 (in the same room as the general meeting earlier that day).
Participants include NBS Board member Pete Smith, who will
be speaking on the books published about the Philadelphia Mint,
and Eric Newman, who will be discussing one of the earliest
authors on a numismatic topic in the United States, Beale
Bordley. Other events of interest for numismatic bibliophiles
include the following Numismatic Theater talks:
"Exploring the Digital Library", by ANA Librarian Nawana
Britenriker (August 9, 11am)
"Noted Philadelphia Numismatic Dealers and Collectors
1850-present", by NBS Board member and past president
P. Scott Rubin (August 9, 5 pm)
"First the Book: Building a Core Numismatic Library", by
COIN WORLD editor Beth Deisher (August 13, 9am)
NBS members and E-Sylum subscribers (in addition to those
named above) make up a large percentage of presenters at
the convention, including John Adams, Q. David Bowers,
Richard Doty, Michael Fey, George Fuld, David Ganz, Greg
and Lisa Heim, David Lange, Tom Sheehan, Bob Van Ryzin,
John & Nancy Wilson, and Myron Xenos. Did I miss anyone?
Great job, folks!
