Buel Ish published this note recently on the Colonial Coins Yahoo group about a presentation at the upcoming American Numismatic Association convention.
Larry Gaye, Numismatist and Portland Oregon area C4, EAC, CTCC, and MCA member will be giving a talk at the ANA show in Chicago this summer. The talk is entitled, “The Otis B. Wight Collection of Washingtonia and Early U.S. Political Medals in the Portland Art Museum”. This is an exceptional collection of material donated to PAM in 1913. Dr. Wight was a physician and early pioneer of the use of X Ray's in medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University, the medical school and research hospital of Oregon State University. He was a director of PAM prior to the donation of his collection to the museum.
Larry has been able to photograph and document most of the material in the collection. This Money Talks presentation will take place on August 11, the opening day of the show to the public at high noon! Please help me spread the word about this event!
The Money Talks presentations are one of my favorite parts of the convention. This sounds like an opportunity to learn more about an important collection.
