He has contributed more than 50 articles and government publications to the geological literature in coastal geomorphology and hydrodynamics, sedimentology, stratigraphy, as well as petroleum exploration and production. He holds BA, MA and PhD degrees in geology. r. Barwis has been a stamp collector for 59 years, most recently specializing in the classic issues of the United States, the first issues of Victoria, Australia, and the postal history of Philadelphia. His exhibits have won national and international gold medals, as well as grand awards in the United States and Great Britain. He is a Fellow of the Royal Philatelic Society London and President of the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society. He serves on the Long Range Planning Committee of the American Philatelic Society, and is a member of many philatelic organizations.

Moreover, Dr. John Barwis, President and Senior Fellow at IAP, as well as a serious student of classic U.S. material, says "Not only will IAP researchers be able to use the NPM facilities, but we will also have access to the philatelic collections.

IAP President John Barwis addressed the Board of Directors of the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society resulting in the completion of an Alliance Agreement with the USPCS.
Formed more than 60 years ago, the USPCS has a simple credo prominently placed on their web site, "We emphasize the need to share the results of our studies and research with fellow students and collectors. But most of all, we are here to promote enjoyment and fun from a hobby that has given us many hours of pleasure."
John is excited that "this agreement opens the possibility of funding larger, even more important research on U.S. Classic issues through the possibility of cost-sharing between our two organizations."
