New Haven: Prepared by Committee of Eighty, (1950). 8vo, self-covered. (24) pages; various paginations. Near fine. Item #5261
A very scarce publication detailing the controversy culminating in the expulsion of Katen from the ANA by the Executive Board. It reprints the pertinent issues of Katen Coin Capers from 1949 and 1950, along with a questionnaire requesting a new slate of ANA officers. In his bibliography, John Adams writes: "Kapers began to focus on the A.N.A. organization, with particular attention devoted to its inefficiencies and voting procedures. There was considerable merit in the points that were raised; indeed, most of the practices that Katen criticized were changed in later years."
