Make your plans now for the Postal History Symposium

This year’s Postal History Symposium – a joint production of the APS, APRL, and Smithsonian National Postal Museum – will be held at the American Philatelic Center in Bellefonte this year. The same weekend, September 16-18, the United States Stamp Society will host a stamp show here.

Future APRL building
Lunch on Friday and Saturday will be held in the future home of the APRL at the American Philatelic Center. While much work remains to be done before this space is a working library, it now has a roof and windows and is a beautiful room. The current APRL is also located at the APC and will be available to visitors during the symposium and show.

There will also be several meal functions during the weekend for which reservations are required. The USSS will host a Dutch Treat dinner on Friday, and there will be free lunches at the APC on both Friday and Saturday. On Saturday evening, there will be a banquet and symposium keynote by Dr. David Hochfelder.

For more information and to make reservations and purchase banquet tickets, please see our symposium website.
