Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Announces Newman Grants
The Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES) today announces its third set of Newman
Grants, created to financially assist numismatic authors and organizations pursuing original research in
American numismatics. Newman Grants are awarded annually on the late Eric P. Newman's birthday
and assist with direct costs of numismatic research such as travel, photography, and graphic arts
Six awards are being made this year, touching on varied aspects of numismatics including colonial and
federal coinage, numismatic literature, medals, and numismatics of World War II. The 2022 Newman
Grant awardees are:
Ellen Anstey will conduct research regarding the development of the America the Beautiful Quarters
Program (2010-2021). Anstey previously delivered a postgraduate thesis related to the State Quarters
George Cuhaj will document medals issued by the Roman Catholic Church in the United States beginning
in 1789. Cuhaj has previously published on this topic in The Numismatist and the TAMS Journal.
David Fanning will create a bibliography of the earliest photographically illustrated numismatic
publications. Fanning has written widely on numismatic literature, including the 2020 monograph
Ancient Coins in Early American Auctions, 1869-1939.
Steve Feller and Ray Feller will investigate internment camp money of the United States during World
War II. This father-daughter team are the authors of Silent Witnesses: Civilian Camp Money of World
War II (2007), which explored money and scrip used in concentration camps and ghettos.
Jesse Kraft is the Assistant Curator of American Numismatics at the American Society and will travel to
Europe to study archival resources related to the engraver Elias Gervais and his possible involvement
with the Continental Dollar.
Ángel O. Navarro Zayas will study efforts to introduce copper coinage into 18 th century Spanish America.
Zayas has recently published material from the Archivo General de Indias in Seville, Spain, and other
repositories, in The Numismatist and The Journal of Early American Numismatics.
It is the hope of EPNNES that this program will continue the legacy of Eric P. Newman in a way that
would reflect his high standards for numismatic research.
