Greg Rohan (2023)
Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions, speaks on the Texas collector Harry W. Bass, Jr. and his numismatic endeavors. Bass collected widely, with specialties in U.S. gold, pattern pieces, and numismatic literature. A World War II veteran, Bass was active in oil and real estate and worked within the hobby to promote scholarship within American numismatics. He was influential in the computerization of the American Numismatic Society collection, one of the earliest such efforts in the formative days of the Internet. The Bass collection continues to draw headlines today, with the recent offering of the Bass reference sets by Heritage Auctions. Speaker: Greg Rohan.
