QUERY: INFORMATION ON DR. JOHN E. WILKISON SOUGHT

Jeffrey P. LaPlante submitted this question about Dr. John E. Wilkison. I did not find an entry in Pete Smith's American Numismatic Biographies. Can anyone help? -Editor

I am doing some research on a Dr. John E. Wilkison and recently purchased at auction his copy of the 1953 Palace Collections Catalog inscribed to him by R. Green of Sotheby's. It has what I assume are his personal marks and notations probably written during the auction. I happened to notice David Akers either auctioned off his holdings or purchased them outright. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the Doctor.

It is my hope this research will lead to an article in The Asylum or some other periodical or journal in the future. I am also looking for any other information about the Doctor as I know next to nothing at this time, other than he was a doctor and a coin collector. Obviously of some note if he took the long trip to Cairo in those turbulent times.
