The Weston Town Crier reports that Dr. Guy Dillaway will be the first person to receive the prestigious Spellman Award in over five years.

Dillaway, a resident and dentist in Weston, has been involved with the Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History since the mid-1960s. He was on the museum’s Board of Trustees for 20 years until recently and now does appraisals for them.

Dillaway is a past Vice-President of the American Philatelic Society, he is also a member of the American Stamp Dealers Association, and the Postal History Society.

The Spellman Museum, with more than 2 million items, was founded in 1960. It is one of only two stamp museums in the country, the other being the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
