Long before phones and computers, these glorious examples of art and craftsmanship, seemingly, mere little blobs of ink on paper, have been part of our human history spanning the globe. They have helped us "reach out and touch someone" for more than 165 years. Do you collect? How, and what, do you collect? Come Join Us!
They provide a constant stimulus for the inquisitive mind and lover of history. The challenge, is engaging the younger generations, and thus, we congratulate a fellow club member for her innovation. The club has established a grant program to help school teachers with the cost of using stamps in their school curriculum. Grants are limited to school systems in the Greater Mid-South (Memphis, TN, USA) area. Below, Tammy Phillips, our first Grant Recipient, receives her award from Karla Norman. Please see the MSCS Grant page under "School Librarian".
A gold medal was awarded to Mr. Albert G. Dewey, Jr. of Maryland for his single-frame exhibit “Overprints of Ireland 1922 to 1935”, while Andy Burkman was awarded a Silver for “The Flag With Clouds Issue of 1988”, and David Saks took a Bronze with “United States Official Stamps 1873 – 1875.”
