Biographical or historical data
Henry Phillips was born in Philadelphia on 6 September 1838. He was well known for his studies in folklore, philology, and numismatics, both in the United States and in Europe. Two gold medals were conferred upon him by Italian societies for his writings. He was treasurer (1862) and secretary (1868) of the Numismatic and Antiquarian Society of Philadelphia, and a secretary (from 1880) and the librarian (from 1885) of the American Philosophical Society, as well as member of many other learned societies at home and abroad. Phillips' works on the paper currency of the American colonies and on American continental money were the first on those subjects. His works have been cited by the Unid States Supreme Court in a decision on the "Legal Tender Cases." Among his writings are: "History of American Colonial Paper Currency" (1865); "History of American Continental Paper Money" (1866); Pleasures of Numismatic Science" (1867); "Poems from the Spanish and German" (1878); "Faust" (1881); and four volumes of translations from the Spanish, Hungarian, and German. He died in June 1895.
