The Remarkable Huntingtons is a chronicle of the marriage of Archer and Anna who wed in 1923 when he was 57 years old and she was 47. At the time of their marriage both had achieved individual fame, he for his riches and philanthropy, and she for her work as a sculptor. A lifelong collector, Archer had amassed over of 30,000 coins by the time he retired in 1946. That same year, he sought to transfer these coins from the Hispanic Society to the neighboring American Numismatic Society: both institutions he had helped settle in Audubon Terrace decades earlier. Using a number of sources, including Anna's voluminous diaries, the authors illustrate the lives of this extraordinary couple and their many achievements.
