COLORADO SPRINGS - The American Numismatic Association is accepting papers on "Numismatics in its Relationship to World's Fairs and Expositions" from authors and researchers who would like to be a part of the Maynard Sundman Littleton Coin Company Lecture Series.

 

Selected authors will be asked to deliver presentations in the Aug. 14 symposium at the ANA World's Fair of MoneySM in Chicago. This year marks the 120th anniversary of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition and the 80th anniversary of the Century of Progress International Exposition, both held in Chicago.

 

Selected presenters will receive a $250 honorarium. Submissions, which are due April 5, should consist of a lecture summary that is 500 words or less. Each summary should contain an introduction, a brief discussion of the subject, sources and research method.

 

Priority is given to papers that emphasize areas of new research and scholarship.
