Acorn to Sapling: The American Numismatic Society before Huntington
From Acorn to Sapling: The American Numismatic Society before Huntington
Saturday, August 1
1:00 pm ET
This Money Talks will be held live via video conference. As with any Money Talks, you will be able to ask questions and hear responses in real time. The session is open to ANS members only. RSVP to Emma Pratte at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the link.
The ANS’s symbol is the mighty oak grown from a tiny acorn. But the tree didn’t become fully rooted until after 1905, when Archer Huntington—who gave the Society a building, a professional staff, and a firm commitment to scholarly publishing—became president. We will look at the Society during its pre-Huntington, “sapling” years, taking into consideration its members as well as other nineteenth-century numismatic groups.
Money Talks: Numismatic Conversations is supported by an ANS endowment fund generously given in honor of Mr. Vladimir Clain-Stefanelli and Mrs. Elvira Clain-Stefanelli.
