JEWISH-AMERICAN HALL OF FAME PLAQUES

Regarding last week's article about reader Mel Wacks and his work with the Jewish Hall of Fame medals, Mel Wacks writes:

I was surprised to see the Jewish Journal article in The E-Sylum. I just want to point out that while I do have a complete collection of Jewish-American Hall of Fame medals in a custom display cabinet on my wall, there is an actual Jewish-American Hall of Fame exhibit of plaques at the Virginia Holocaust Museum in Richmond. A sample of the plaques is attached. There are almost 50 plaques on view, almost all mounted galvanos made by Greco Industries, the company established by Hugo Greco (formerly of Medallic Art Co.) and his sons.

Thanks! Here are the photos. -Editor
