StampShow - APS National Summer Convention

The show was held in Richmond, Virginia and ran from August 3-6, 2017. I showed my ten frame exhibit titled The W.H.O.'s 'The World United Against Malaria' Stamp Campaign and received a Gold but not as amny points as last time so I need to clean it up a little. The exhibit has pages for each of the 150+ stamps and labels issued from 1961 till 1964 and a "conclusion" double wide page with stamps issued in the 21st century.

UNEXPO17 - October 27 through October 28, 2017

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.
