The Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History will host its sixth annual postal history symposium on Thursday, May 3, 2018. The symposium’s theme is A Century of U.S. Air Mail. It will take place on the campus of Regis College (College Hall 202) in Weston, Massachusetts, where the museum is located, starting at 9:30AM on the day before the opening of Philatelic Show 2018 in nearby Boxboro.
The associated displays in the Museum’s galleries, open to the public, will include truly exceptional material from its holdings and an example of the famous Inverted Jenny U.S. Air Mail stamp error, on loan from the American Philatelic Society.
The symposium presenters include Scott Trepel, The First Flight of the Jenny; Santiago Cruz, SCADTA, The Pioneer Years, 1920-1922; Murray Abramson, Development of U.S. Air Mail to European, African, and Asian Destinations; and David Crotty, Air Cargo Transportation in the South Atlantic and Across Africa during World War II.
