Dave Lange forwarded this great photo from the 1991 ANA convention banquet. Thanks! -Editor
I'm attaching a photo that seems to be little known. It's a group photo of the ANA's Banquet at the 1991 centennial
convention in Chicagomont. The photo is too large for me to scan in a single pass, so I'm sending it in two parts with a slight
overlap. It's also taller than in the scans, but all that's missing here is unoccupied carpet.
I don't believe the ANA had had a banquet photo taken since the 1970s, due to how large the conventions became after that time.
Ironically, the officers and other bigwigs ended up in the distance, since the photographer had to go so far back to get everyone in the
picture. I remember him perched on a tall ladder. While I was in the back row for all of the awards and speeches, it turned out that I was
in the front for the photo, and I appear third from the left during a brief beardless period.
There was no announcement in The Numismatist of this photo's availability, so I called Barbara Gregory about getting a copy.
I don't remember what I paid, but it's likely that the greater part of the cost was shipping. For the record, the print measures
24" x 12" tall.
