Red Book Celebrities in the Spotlight at ANA Legacy Series

ANA World’s Fair of Money to Feature Bressett, Garrett in Chicago

To recognize hobby icons and create a record of their contributions, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) conducts the ANA legacy series – live interviews with notables in the coin community. The events, held in conjunction with ANA conventions, is intended to honor individuals who have profoundly influenced the hobby and to give listeners some insight into their lives, personalities, and achievements.

The 11th installment of this ANA legacy series will be presented on Thursday, August 15, at 5 p.m. during the ANA World’s Fair of Money® at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (Room 44) in Rosemont, Illinois. The guests of honor will be Kenneth E. Bressett, editor emeritus of A Guide Book of United States Coins (the “Red Book“), and Jeff Garrett, who was named senior editor of the essential hobby reference in May 2018.

Conducted by Numismatist Editor-in-Chief Barbara Gregory, the interview will focus on their early years (including numismatic background and interests), their challenges and crowning achievements in the publishing world, how the Red Book has affected their careers and perspectives, what inspires them, and what’s in store for them, both personally and professionally.
