Proceeding of the American Numismatic Society free pdf Excerpt from Proceeding of the American Numismatic Society: For the Sixty-Second Annual Meeting and List of Officers and Members The sixty-second annual meeting of the American Numismatic Society was held at the Museum of the Society on January 10th, 1920. In the absence of President Newell, Mr. John Reilly, one of the Governors, presided. The meeting was called to order at 3.04 P. M. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. The President's address, written previous to his departure for Europe, was read by Mr. Reilly. President Newell's Address. The year that has just elapsed may well be spoken of as the "Medal" year of our Society. Due to this country's ever-increasing interest in medallic art and to the many important historical events which have marked the year 1919, our Society has never before been so active in this great field of numismatics. Medals to commemorate the Peace Treaty of Versailles, the celebration of our National Day - the Fourth of July - by the most important nations of the world, the visit of the Prince of Wales to the United States, the Dedication of the Joan of Arc Park, have all been published by the Society. In addition, the J. Stanford Saltus Award Medal was finally completed and presented to its first recipient, Mr. Frazer, for his achievement in the field of Medallic Art. Nearly all the foremost medallists in America have now, one after the other, been called upon to assist in making our series of medals the finest that has ever been issued by any society in our country, and we may justly be proud of it. It appears to me, from several points of view, that this activity is one of the most important that can be undertaken by our Society. Continued progress in this particular field canno' fail to increase still further the slowly awakening interest in the Art of the Medal in America, and therefore to encourage artists to make this one of their principal instead of one of their minor forms of expression. It is unquestionably true that of late years, possibly due to the war, possibly to other factors, medallic art both here and abroad has fallen below the standard that might have been expected. Now, with the quickening to art that in the past has so often followed a great war, with the changed conditions and new outlooks that have been brought about by what may or may not have been an unmitigated evil, medallic art ought certainly to blossom forth afresh, and it should be our Society's proudest boast that it was one of the first to encourage as well as to take advantage of such a revival. There fortunately remain a number of foremost artists in our country whose talents could profitably be employed by the Society, this coming year, to increase still further the value of our medallic series. Thus we may expect not only to retain the interest of the many lovers of this form of art who have recently joined our Society principally because of the fine medals being published by it, but also to secure further members who will soon come to see that otherwise they are missing a unique opportunity in not becoming one of us. It would indeed be lacking in gratitude of the most elementary nature if we did not here state that the remarkable medallic achievement of 1919 is very largely due to the initiative and to the untiring generosity of our great friend Mr. J. Sanford Saltus, who in many cases made it possible for us to enter upon the striking of a medal. The advance recorded in our collections during the year just past will be described in detail by our curator. Let me merely state that this advance, appropriately enough, is more important in the medallic series. Many rare and most interesting specimens connected with the events of the Great War have been secured, and these will go far to increase the great scientific and historical importance of our collections. It has, indeed, of late, been our policy to secure wherever and whenever possible, an
