There is a good group of numismatists and archaeologists and historians.
A reader of The E-Sylum recently stated his opposition to "anything connected with Walter Breen as he was a CONVICTED PEDOPHILE [caps sic]," and that "we should NOT [caps sic] celebrate anything he did." The larger issue is whether we should review and evaluate the entire catalog of numismatic publications in terms of the author's personality, proclivities, eccentricities, shortcomings, and morals.
To this notion I must resoundingly respond "No!" Speaking for myself alone, I have no difficulty whatsoever pulling down my copy of Breen's Encyclopedia, for example, to study his taxonomy of New Jersey coppers, while blocking out his personal demons. Indeed, I have neither desire, time, nor the capability to research the persona of every author whose work I wish to consult before I declare his work worthwhile. If I actually did pursue this reasoning, I'd bet a dollar to anyone's drachma that I'd have to throw away half my library. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone, say I.
