Anna Schwartz, 1915-2012

Anna Schwartz, co-author of A Monetary History of the United States with Milton Friedman, died yesterday at the age of 96.  Allan Meltzer has a nice tribute to this great economist.  During my time at NYU Economics she was at the NBER, a few floors above us, and I occasionally saw her in the elevator -- one of my little brushes with true greatness.  Unforeseen Contingencies salutes her memory and her work.
