We have articles from a few different authors. Great topics and great writing. Thank you authors!

Auction 20:
There are lots of items in Auction 20 and hopefully you can add some items to your collection.

A few members have mentioned that they collect more than just Anti-Malaria items and have interests in other diseases and insects so this auction includes some. We will see how it goes.

Handbook Updates

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.
