In other ANS news, a new Assistant Curator for the Americas is on board. -Editor
The American Numismatic Society is pleased to announce that Dr. Jesse Kraft has been hired as Assistant Curator of the Coins and Currency of the Americas.
Dr. Kraft finished his PhD in American Studies
at the University of Delaware earlier this year where he wrote a dissertation entitled "The Circulation of Foreign Coinage: An American Response, ca. 1750–1857," and where
obtained a certificate in Museum Studies. In his earlier studies at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, he wrote an MA thesis on the circulation of Spanish-American silver
in Scotland, and a BA thesis on the transition from the large to small US cent in 1840–1857.
While completing his graduate studies, Dr. Kraft worked at the Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library in Winterthur, Delaware as a Curatorial Assistant and Storage Project
Manager. In addition, he completed internships at the Delaware Historical Society and at the ANS, where in 2017 he was also a student in the in the Eric P. Newman Graduate Summer
Seminar in Numismatics. "We are thrilled that Dr. Kraft accepted our offer after a rather long and competitive search process," said Executive Director Ute Wartenberg, "he comes
to us with an intimate knowledge already of the Society and a good knowledge of museum work. We very much look forward to having him join our curatorial team."
Welcome! Great thesis topics; these are subjects I've thought and read about often. I'll look forward to meeting Dr. Kraft at a future event. -Editor
