The U.S. Philatelic Classics Society is not-for-profit association of people interested in the pre-1894 stamps and postal history of the United States. Our goal is to promote interest and knowledge of philately through the encouragement of philatelic research, and through exchange of information among our members as well with other philatelic organizations. We do this by preparing and distributing philatelic literature and periodicals, particularly The Chronicle of the U.S. Classic Postal Issues and the Chairman's Chatter. We are operated entirely by volunteers, and welcome anyone interested in the classic era of American philately.
The Web Chronicle is Born
Nearly 20,000 pages of The Chronicle are now readable and fully searchable on our web site, as a benefit of membership. We have pioneered what we believe to be the way of the future, in digitizing philatelic content and integrating it onto a web site for viewing, and are pleased to have taken the lead. There are no CDs or DVDs to buy; membership is the only requirement to access it.
