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."
