Stamps and Postal History  

Postage stamps are tiny canvasses of art that convey our history as well as current events. They teach geography and share the nation's culture and values. If you ever collected stamps or considered collecting stamps, then this course will deliver. During our three evenings we will cover different aspects of collecting and exhibiting stamps. We will review how to identify stamps, measure perforations, view watermarks, and mount stamps in albums. We will examine postal history including envelopes carried by Charles Lindbergh, Admiral Byrd over the North and South Poles, and covers carried on the Space Shuttle. Postal history needn't be related to just the famous, so we will spend time converting your own postcards and letters into family history exhibits you can share by email.
