Plaque marks Krause’s start

Numismatic News’ first permanent home was recognized at the unveiling Oct. 13 of an historical marker by John Gillespie, left, and Clifford Mishler. It stands in front of a building that was built by Chet Krause in 1957 to house his growing publishing business. It was in that year also that Krause gave up his career as a building contractor. Mishler noted that it was through the front door there that he first walked in March 1963. The next year Krause Publications became a corporate business entity. As Krause’s business prospered he became a staunch patron of a charity founded near Iola by Gillespie in 1965. Rawhide Boys Ranch works with at-risk youth. See Page 6 for more about the ceremony.
