Descriptive Entry
These records primarily document the curatorial and professional activities of Vladimir Clain-Stefanelli and his wife, Elvira E. Clain-Stefanelli, and to a lesser extent the activities of curators Stuart M. Mosher, Richard G. Doty, and Coralee C. Gillilland. The records date back to when the National Numismatic Collection was known as the Division of Numismatics, and prior to 1947 when the collections were created and maintained by the Division of History.
Material includes correspondence, memoranda, and notes pertaining to exhibition planning, inventory projects, coin and medal acquisitions, conferences, staff publications, care of numismatic collections, and annual reports; articles, news releases, and newspaper clippings about the Clain-Stefanellis; contracts; scripts and floor plans for the Hall of Numismatics; exhibition brochures; photographs of the Clain-Stefanellis at special events; information on medal programs; publications and lecture papers authored by the Clain-Stefanellis; research and work progress reports; correspondence with organizations such as the American Numismatics Association, American Bankers Association, and the Federation Internationale de la Medaille; and awards presented to the Clain-Stefanellis. Also includes records documenting the Josiah K. Lilly, Jr., Collection of gold coins and the Willis H. DuPont Collection of Russian coinage.
