Chet Krause Resigns From ANA Board
July 08, 2010

I have just had word that Chet Krause resigned from the American Numismatic Association board of governors.

His letter of resignation was received by ANA President Cliff Mishler yesterday.

The 86-year-old Krause has had some health problems lately and he is reluctant to travel under the circumstances. Krause was first elected to the board in the 2007 in the anti-incumbent sweep in that year's election.

Succeeding to Krause's seat is former board member and Numismatic News columnist Alan Herbert. Herbert garnered the largest number of votes in the 2009 election without winning a seat and is therefore the next line for a vacancy.

"I regret Chet's departure from the board," Mishler told me. "We value his wise counsel and will miss him going forward."

At the same time, Mishler cited Herbert's experience and the expectation that he would pick up the duties of the seat without missing a beat.
