Milan Alusic (2016)

Milan Alusic died in 2015 at age 90 as IBNS Secretary Emeritus and Director for Life. He was one of the last of a core group of numismatists from Racine, Wisconsin,

arguable the IBNS cornerstone location in the United States during the 1980’s and 1990’s. While it took a few attempts to get Milan accustomed to collecting paper money, once it took hold it became a lifelong pursuit and numismatics became a centerpiece of his life.

Milan took on the role of General Secretary in 1978, when the IBNS had been in existence for only 17 years. He continued to serve in the position for 26 years. His work has served as a model for his successors to follow. He was unquestionably one of the most indispensable members of the IBNS for almost three decades. This great unsung hero of the IBNS will always be remembered as someone who did not say much, worked tirelessly and contributed enormously to the survival and growth of the IBNS as we enjoy it today.
