Sundman Lecture Series – World’s Fair of Money
The American Numismatic Association (ANA) is currently accepting proposals for the 2018 Maynard Sundman Littleton Coin Company Lecture Series. Presentations will be given August 15 during the symposium at the Philadelphia World’s Fair of Money®. Proposals must be received by February 26.
Beloved historical figure, scientist, inventor and author Benjamin Franklin is revered for his contributions to American numismatics. To highlight the Founding Father’s role in shaping U.S. money, the 2018 theme for the Sundman Lecture Series will be “Fugio to Franklins: The Influence of Poor Richard.”
Those who wish to present at this year’s symposium must submit a lecture summary of 500 words or less. Each summary should contain an introduction, a brief discussion of the subject, sources and research method. Summaries will be reviewed and speakers evaluated and chosen based on originality, persuasiveness and relevance to the symposium topic. Selected presenters will receive a $250 honorarium.
Electronic submissions are preferred and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to:
