Long-time ANA member Larry Baber was re-appointed treasurer of the American Numismatic Association during a teleconference by the nonprofit organization’s Board of Governors held on June 7. Baber precedes/succeeds Gerome Walton, who served as the ANA’s treasurer for two years while Baber was overseas on a church-related mission in the Marshall Islands. Walton is returning to his previous role as assistant treasurer, a position to which he originally was appointed in 1988.
Baber, an ANA member since 1975, had previously served as ANA treasurer from 2011 to 2014. He was a Certified Public Accountant and partner with the accounting firm of Leaf & Cole, LLP for more than 20 years.
