Henry Linderman


Henry Linderman

Henry Linderman (1825-79) was an American financier, born at Lehman, Pa. He studied medicine in New York and in 1853 removed to Philadelphia where he practiced medicine for a short time. In 1855-64 he was chief clerk of the US Mint, and its director in 1866-69. He proposed the coinage of the trade dollar, and with Knox drew up the Coinage Act of 1873. As superintendent of the Mint, he wrote annual reports, of which that of 1877, arguing for the gold standard, is best known and most important.
