Stamp Class

The Battle Creek Enquirer ran a nice article earlier this week about Dr. Richard Bloch and his 4th grade class stamp class at the St. Joseph Elementary School in Battle Creek, Michigan.

According to the paper, "At the beginning of each class, which has 12 members, Bloch teaches a short lesson to the children and then dumps a pile of thousands of stamps on a table at the back of the room."

These stamps are duplicates of Bloch's collection or donated stamps from others stamp collectors in the Kalamazoo Stamp Club.

Bloch started the class after he retired from a career in medicine in the community and then at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in the early 1990s.
