John Lupia submitted the following information from the online draft of his book of numismatic biographies for this week's installment of his series. Thanks! As always, this is an excerpt with the
full article and bibliography available online. This week's subject is Hans Schulman, in a continuation of last week's entry on the Schulman family of coin dealers. -Editor
On May 15, 1902, he moved the shop from Amersfoort, Utrecht province, to the north in Amsterdam, Keizersgracht 448, Amsterdam, and the business management was placed under the direction of his sons Maurits "
(1876-1943), and Geertruida Henrietta van Raalte had a son Hans Morits Friedrich Schulman (May 13, 1913- March 8, 1990), and André (1877-1936), and his son Jacques III (April 6, 1906-April 9, 1991).
Maurits and André Schulman had placed their sons Hans and Jacques in the firm at Amsterdam to learn the family business. When each were of age they were sent to Paris to study at the Sorbonne. Jacques seven years Hans
senior graduated first and returned to the family business.
In 1938, Hans Schulman graduated the Sorbonne, Paris, and did not return to the family business as Jacques had done, but rather, left to the United States on the outbreak of the rise of the Nazi regime's
terrorist campaign against Jews. Funded by his father, he opened shop at 545 Fifth Avenue, New York.
As Herman Herst, Jr. relates his personal account in Germany at the outbreak of the Nazi regime Jews were forced to convert their wealth into postage stamps in order to get their money out of the country. With Maurits and
Hans working with Americans in the New York Stock Exchange and in the new coin shop in New York it gave the Schulmans leverage during WWII.
On July 2, 1943, Morits Schulman died. With Hans in New York it left his nephew, Jacques Schulman III to serve as the business manager.
Who among our readers besides Dick Johnson has met Hans Schulman? What can you tell us? -Editor
