The American Numismatic Society will hold a gala dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel Jan. 12, 2017 in New York City, to award honors and to raise funds.
Anthony J. Terranova, the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society and the Newman Numismatic Portal will be given the Trustees’ Award.
Terranova has been ANS Life Fellow since 1995. He first joined 40 years ago. He is a collector, dealer and researcher who has enhanced the ANS collections with many important donations.
The Newman Numismatic Portal is an online numismatic resource, sponsored by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, which works with the ANS on a scanning project that enables greater access to American numismatic research material on both the ANS Digital Library and Newman Portal websites.
Administered through Washington University Libraries in St. Louis, the Newman Numismatic Portal has contracted with Internet Archive for the scanning operation at the ANS Library. Internet Archive is a non-profit organization dedicated to digital preservation of all media. The NNP, sponsored by a $2 million grant from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society to the Washington University Libraries, began operations in December 2014. It has digitized over 170,000 pages of ANS documents.
