Abstract

Fifteen Days of Fame (or at least of media attention) The JER article by Robert M. Peck and Eric P. Newman, ``Discovered! The First Engraving of an Audubon Bird,'' in our Fall 2010 issue garnered a flurry of interest--more than the fifteen minutes of fame promised by Andy Warhol. The article touched on areas rarely, if ever, explored in the journal--art history, numismatics, and natural history--as well as some familiar themes--banking history, biography, and archival research. Recognizing the broad appeal of this article, Penn Press and the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, where Peck is Curator of Arts and Artifacts and Senior Fellow, issued a joint press release. A story based on the article quickly made the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer. That story was then picked up by AP and Reuters and spread across the country.

It appeared on the websites of Discovery magazine, National Geographic, Science News, Financial News, and more. Then the news cycle, with its short attention span, turned to other subjects.
