Description
 
In 2008 Robert Ross approached Alan M. Stahl, Curator of Numismatics, Princeton University, about the possibility of donating his collection of medals and orders to the Princeton University Numismatic Collection. Stahl expressed his belief, on the basis of two decades as curator of the medals collection of the American Numismatic Society, that such objects did indeed provide material evidence for historical inquiry. Moreover, the need for such a collection at an academic institution was acute. Ross had built a general collection of world medals and orders. He and Stahl decided to focus on the primary interest of Rossís collecting as well as professional life: Latin America. This catalogue accompanies the exhibition and documents the Ross Collection at Princeton. Contents: Preface: Not Just Baubles and Trinkets, by Miguel Angel Centeno; Historical Introduction, by Robert Ross; The Medallic Legacy of the Filibusters, by Allen Menke; Introduction to the Catalogue, by Alan M. Stahl; The Catalogue (Latin American countries in alphabetical order); Bibliography. Color photographs.
