APS StampShow: Pittsburgh, August 6th to 9th I plan to go. If you are going to go to the show, please send me an email at and we can make plans to meet and talk malaria stamps and/or make some trades or purchases.

Exhibits Update: If anyone else is working on an exhibit or thinking about working on an exhibit, please contact me at and I may be able to answer some questions or may be able to connect you with someone at the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors (AAPE). If you are looking for more information on exhibiting, the AAPE website is at There is a lot of information up on the site along with over a hundred exhibits online to view and get ideas from on how to set one up.

Always Looking for Articles: Please consider writing an article about some part of your malaria collection, or how you got started collecting malaria stamps, or about a doctor in the malaria field that can have supporting stamps with it, or new varieties that you have found, etc. All I need is the text and some images and I can put together the web page. A text file, MS Word file, and many other formats will work. If you have an exhibit that has interesting malaria items in it, please send scans of the exhibit pages and I can add them to the site.
