Len Augsburger is the Project Coordinator for the Newman Numismatic Portal. He submitted the following note about the digitization of a
new group of journals from the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN). Thanks! -Editor
The Newman Portal has scanned a substantial run of The Clarion, the journal of the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists. This
particular group spans the period 1985-2006, and the Newman Portal will be filling out the remainder in the near future. While state
publications tend to focus on show news, advertising, and social events, The Clarion has featured a steady stream of useful,
original material. In particular, The Clarion leverages its proximity to the U.S. Mint, and, within its pages, we find interviews of
Mint engravers such as Gilroy Roberts [image attached, from November 1990, vol. 7, no. 3] and Elizabeth Jones.
As with similar publications, personalities abound, and a quick survey identifies hobby figures such as Harry Forman, Frank Gasparro, and
John Eshbach, well-known in the bibliophilic realm as the collector of material related to Charles Steigerwalt, the 19th century Lancaster, PA
dealer. The Newman Portal wishes to thank Tom Uram, PAN President, and Pat McBride, PAN Treasurer, for facilitating presentation of this content on
the Newman Portal.
