Drs. Joe & Barbara Herbstman
The Joe I. Herbstman Memorial Collection of American Finance
was established in memory of my beloved father, Dr. Joe I. Herbstman (1923-1994). My dad passed along to his children his great knowledge of investment finance, along with an appreciation for history and a lifelong love of learning. The Herbstman Collection was born from this inheritance.
The collection is specifically focused on the various federal loan instruments of the United States, from the earliest revolutionary loans to the last paper bonds issued in the 1980's. U.S. Treasury securities are the most important sovereign debt instruments within the global financial marketplace. The primary mission of The Herbstman Collection is to serve as an educational tool in teaching the history of these bonds and our national debt. My hope is that this collection serves as a lasting resource for generations to come.
