    The APS AmeriStamp Expo stamp show will be held in Riverside, CA on February 13-15, 2015. There will be three anti-malaria exhibits from members Larry Fillion and Mike Birrer.

If members plan to attend and want to meet, please contact me through email at malariastamps@yahoo.com or through the Contact Form and I can coordinate some meetup times.

    Welcome to the revived Malaria Philatelists International (MPI). It has been 20 long years and it is about time that the club was back in action. There has been a lot of activity over the last few decades. Auction sites such as eBay and other online stamp venues have a few hundred malaria items for sale each week. There have been a lot of new archival material related to malaria on the auction block including the UNPA Archives a few years back, and in April 2007, the "ARCHIVES DES TIMBRES-POSTE SUISSES ET ETRANGERS" sale at David Feldman had some incredible malaria proofs for sale from Ceylon, Philippines, Congo, and a few others. There will be an article describing the items in a future Miasma.
    Mike Birrer and myself (Larry Fillion) have been scanning hundreds of items to be included in the Malaria Catalog. This is an ongoing endeavor that was started 25 years ago and still needs a lot of work. We will need your help.
    I also exhibited for the first time a few weeks ago in Boxborough, MA at a WSP event and received a Vermeil and a Silver for my first two malaria exhibits. Please see the exhibits online on the Exhibits page.
