Lester C. Lanphear III
U.S. Departmentals, 1873 to 1884

The Distinguished Philatelist award is given to Lester C. Lanphear III for his lifetime of achievement and service in the philatelic world.
Distinguished Philatelist Award Winner: Les Lanphear III Lester C. Lanphear III was introduced to philately at the age of eight by his stamp collecting grandfather. After a career move to Los Angeles in 1966, he discovered stamp shops and started collecting used United States classic stamps. By 1970, Les had transferred to San Diego and had begun to participate in organized philately by attending stamp shows and joining the local stamp club, the Philatelic Society of Los Angeles. He became interested in United States booklet panes and, finally, in 1975, began his life-long collection and study of United States Officials. Similar to other collecting areas, besides stamps, Officials include essays, proofs, special printings, covers, and even postal stationery. Unlike other collecting areas, Officials were issued for each executive government department, including Agriculture, Executive, Interior, Justice, Navy, Post Office, State, Treasury and War. Les has collected and studied all the departments and is best known for his departmental covers. He has exhibited virtually all areas of Officials both domestically and internationally, beginning with the The Interior Department in 1990. That was the first United States Official exhibit to ever receive an international gold award. In addition, his showing of U.S. Departmentals was the first United States Official exhibit to receive a national Grand Award and has since received two international large gold awards. Les has been the assistant section editor for the Officials et al. section of The Chronicle of the U. S. Classic Postal Issues since 1995. He has written many articles, primarily concerning the postal history of United States Officials and United States Penalty Clause Mail. His articles have won both of the writers' awards for The Chronicle, the Mortimer L. Neinken Award in 1995 and the Susan M. McDonald Award in 1997. Les has been and continues to be very active in organized philately. In 1984, while president of the San Diego stamp club known as The Philatelic 25, Les became the representative to the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California, the sponsoring organization for SESCAL stamp show. He served the Federation as an officer from 1992 to 1997, including president from 1996 to 1997, and is still a representative. He was recognized for his contributions to philately in Southern California when he received the Federation's Distinguished Service Award in 1998. His association with the Sandical stamp committee began in 1997 and he is still active today. In 2003, he received the Sandical John Tracy Memorial Award for philatelic service to San Diego County. It is for the above reasons and many more that the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society acknowledges the exceptional contributions to philately by Lester C. Lanphear III by honoring him as a Distinguished Philatelist.
