AMELIA EARHART - In 1932, Earhart soloed across the Atlantic Ocean in her plane, Friendship. In 1935, she conquered the Pacific from Hawaii to California. In 1937, she began a 27,000-mile around-the-world flight. Fred Noonan was her navigator, and by late June, they had completed the next-to-last leg of their journey. In July, radio contact with her plane was lost, and the plane was never found.
To this day, their fate remains a mystery.

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".
