A letter from the President

Salvete, collegae praeclarī!

President’s Message


Salvete, collegae praeclarī!


As I sit at my desk watching yet another storm blanketing our area with snow, I find myself longing for warmer days.  I take comfort knowing that, despite appearances, Spring is on the way.  One sure sign of a change in the seasons is the Spring meeting of  the NJ Classical Association which we will be holding on Saturday March 22 at Seton Hall University. We have assembled an interesting program of speakers for your edification. As requested by the attendees of October meeting, Ron D’Argenio will be talking to us about Roman coins and will bring examples from Seton Hall’s collection of coins for us to examine.   Raymond Capra, Past President NJCA, will give a lecture on Roman Spain and John Van Hook will demonstrate a perpetual Roman calendar that he has created in his workshop.


During the business portion of the meeting, we will be holding our bi-annual election of officers.

The slate of candidates is as follows:


        President: John Rathgeb           Vice-President: Dorothy Maxwell

      Treasurer: Marlene Weiner         Secretary: Melissa Trenton

Communications: Ginny Blasi


Thank you to Kathy Whall and the rest of the nominating committee for putting together this slate of officers.


Finally, I encourage you to come and browse at our flea market of books and ancillary materials.  We will be selling books bequeathed to us by our former colleague and friend Anna Benjamin.  She had an extensive collection, and all your purchases will benefit the Edna White Rome Scholarship.


As always, if there is anything that NJCA can do to help you, please contact me (  I am looking forward to seeing you in March.  

(Ver venit.)



Ex Animo,


John Rathgeb
