David Lisot interviews Glenn Smedley of the American Numismatic Association who collected Victor David Brenner medals and wrote "Numismatic Vignettes" for the ANA publication "The Numismatist."
Glenn was involved in numismatics for over 50 years, spending
18 years on the ANA Board of Governors.
He wrote the "Numismatic Vignettes" column in The Numismatist and had many world-class collections, including medals by Victor David Brenner. He had met dealer B. Max Mehl and
became friendly with Amon Carter, Abe Kosoff, and countless other numismatic personalities of his era.
I spent a nice afternoon at ANA headquarters in 1984 where Glenn kindly gave me a tour of the building, all while rolling an oxygen tank behind him. He was very gracious in hosting a numismatic newbie. David interviewed Smedley at his home in Colorado Springs.
