I was sorry to learn this week that N. Neil Harris passed away on Saturday, May 11th, 2019. Neil was editor of the American Numismatic Association
publication The Numismatist from January 1974 through June 1988.
Neil was a sculptor and illustrator whose medallic work is cataloged in Dick Johnson's databank (linked below). He also wrote the catalog of
ANA's convention medals and edited Robert Julian's Medals of the United States Mint, The First Century 1792-1891.
