“Texas Treasure” Article Published in the Swedish Journal of Numismatics


Firstly, allow me to welcome you to my website. Thank you for taking the time to visit. With this inaugural post, I am honored to announce the republication of my article “Texas Treasure: The Renaissance of the Swenson Collection” in the Swedish Journal of Numismatics (Svensk Numismatisk Tidskrift, link for announcement). It will be published in three parts over the next three issues. This engaging article on the history (and future) of the Swenson collection of ancient coins at the University of Texas at Austin was originally published in the Spring 2018 issue of the American Numismatic Society Magazine (link here). It has wide-ranging appeal to students of US, Texas, and Swedish history, to those interested in the history and politics of immigration, and of course to numismatists, coin enthusiasts, and humanists at large. I hope that you will take the time to peruse it. Thank you again for your visit, and do please check back for more posts.
