Miasma Philatelist

In late 1979, the first quarterly journal named 'Miasma Philatelist' was published. A name for the organization would eventually be 'Malaria Philatelists International'. This naming occurred in early 1980 and by mid 1981, the organization received affiliate status in the American Philatelic Society, the Society of Philatelic American, and the American Topical Association. Dr. Ronald Ward, who was the first President of the organization and was President till 1985 has allowed me to host the scanned versions of the periodicals. Below are the original goals of the organization:

Miasma Philatelist, a new quarterly publication has just received its first issue. The newsletter's aim is to serve the needs of topical collectors of stamps, first day covers and other special memorabilia relating to malaria -- its treatment, history, control and eradication campaigns.

This goal is to be net by offering a forum for articles on both the disease itself as well as the associated philatelic events; and by providing for the exchange of information and collectables between readers.

In addition, Miasma Philatelist will feature checklists on stamps, covers, cancels and literature of interest to the malaria topical collector; and will solicit reader additions and corrections to these lists.

Editor-publisher, J.W. Dellinger, plans for this periodical to provide the source for eventual development of a definitive handbook on the malaria topic. To meet this end, Miasma Philatelist is distribited free to all known collectors with interest in any aspect of the malaria topic.
