Samuel Prescott Bush was a member of the Stevens Institute of Technology class of 1884. Bush was on the varsity football and baseball teams, and belonged to the tennis club and served a term as a director of the Stevens Athletic Association, all while earning his bachelor's degree. In the early 1890s, Bush assisted Ohio State football coach Jack Ryder and helped organize an amateur baseball league in Columbus - - he played second base on the Pennsylvania Railroad Columbus Shop team. In 1892 he and two others organized one of Columbus's first tennis clubs. Later, as a charter member of the Scioto Country Club in that city, he chaired the club's golf- course construction committee. Bush, who died in 1948, was a noted industrialist -- railroads and steel were his businesses -- who also performed extensive civic and community service. Stevens recognized that service in 1947 by awarding him an honorary - degree of doctor of engineering.
Samuel is the Grandfather of President G. W. Bush, the Father of Prescott S. Bush (Prescott Bush, was a senator and the tallest man in the Senate for many years) and the Great Grandfather of President George W. Bush and Governor Jeb Bush. Samuel married Flora Sheldon, daughter of Robert Emmet Sheldon and Mary Elizabeth Butler, on 20 Jun 1894 in Columbus, OH.
Stock certificates are collected and given as gifts because of their historical significance, beauty and artwork, autographs, notoriety, as well as many other factors. The supply of new certificates reaching the collector market has been substantially reduced due to changes in state laws and stock exchanges rules. Many companies are no longer required to issue physical stock and bond certificates, a process called “dematerialization.”
Scripophily (scrip-ah-fil-ly) is the name of the hobby of collecting old stock and bond certificates. Certificate values range from a few dollars to more than $500,000 for the most unique and rare items. Tens of thousands of Scripophily buyers worldwide include casual collectors, corporate archives, business executives, museums and serious collectors. Due to the computer age, more and more stock and bonds are issued electronically which means fewer paper certificates are being issued. As a result, demand for paper certificates is increasing while supply is decreasing.
