Frank’s humor is on even more full display in his newsletters for the Albany Numismatic Society.

Resurrecting an old thread on Frank's humor, after his latest auction, I noticed this bio for him in a poetry anthology.

Frank S. Robinson is a graduate of NYU Law School (1970), and served at the New York Public Service Commission as staff counsel and then administrative law judge (1977-97). He is the author of eight books including Albany’s O’Connell Machine(1973), Children of the Dragon (a novel), The Case for Rational Optimism (2009), and Love Poems. Robinson is a professional coin dealer.  He is married to the poet Therese Broderick and has a daughter, Elizabeth. Robinson was appointed to the U.S. Assay Commission by President Nixon in 1972. In 1969, he was the first man to walk on the moon.


Kind of an interesting bio, but also note the deadpan last line.
