There's another E-Sylum connection to an ANA awardee - John Nebel.
Along with Mark and Myrna Lighterman, John has been awarded a Medal of Merit by the American Numismatic Association. Most readers may not realize it, but John is a big reason behind the success of The E-Sylum - he provides free hosting for the NBS web site and E-Sylum archives, and developed and maintains the computer programs that create the archive web pages, tables of contents, and RSS feeds. He was also instrumental in setting up and maintaining the NBS Wiki, enabling the great trove of numismatic bibliographic information that Tom Wetter is assembling for us. Thanks, and Congratulations! Here's an excerpt from the ANA press release.
ANA life member John Nebel is a computer consultant who has volunteered his time and expertise to meet the Association’s technology needs. A Colorado resident, Nebel has taught numismatic photography at the ANA Summer Seminar, where he supports scholarship programs by donating high-value ancient coins to the Young Numismatist Benefit Auction. His numismatic photographs grace the ANA’s Colorado Springs headquarters as well as the pages of The Numismatist, and he freely shares images of ancient Greek and Roman coinage on his website,
Nebel’s firm, Computer Systems Design Company, hosts the websites of more than 50 ANA-member clubs at no charge. Thanks to CSDC, the ANA’s Bebee Collection of U.S. Paper Money also has been digitized and made accessible online for all. Nebel has been recognized with a Presidential Award (2009) and the Glenn Smedley Memorial Award (2010).
