Among these have been several ANA "Numismatic Theater" appearances and guest lectures before prominent organizations like the San Francisco Ancient Coin Club, the Twin Cities Ancient Coin Club, the Historia Nummorum in Boston, the Ancient Numismatic Society of Washington D.C., the Chicago Coin Club, and others. He serves as the Educational Programs Coordinator for the New York International Numismatic Convention and for the past ten years has taught introductory classes in ancient numismatics at the American Numismatic Association's popular Summer Seminar. He is a member of the ANA team of judges for exhibits of ancient coins at the association's annual convention and serves as the ANA Regional Director for the State of Pennsylvania. His articles have appeared in The Celator, and the Classical Numismatic Review. He has written a number of radio scripts for the ANA "Money Talks" program. He is regarded as one of the hobby's most knowledgeable collectors in his area of specialization, the coins of Roman Egypt, and wrote the chapter on these coins in Ancient Coin Collecting -- Vol. IV as well as the Forward to Alexandrian Coins by Keith Emmett. Prior to assuming the editor/publisher position for The Celator in May of 1999, Mr. Wetterstrom is employed by Classical Numismatic Group, Inc. of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
