The Wineburgh Philatelic Research Library

Founded in 1976 by the late Harold Wineburgh, the Wineburgh Philatelic Research Library (WPRL) was envisioned as a means of promoting not only philatelic research but also of inspiring a love of learning through philately.

Since then the WPRL has grown into one of the finest philatelic libraries in the country with thousands of books and periodical volumes. Over 100 subscriptions to current philatelic journals are maintained with hundreds of older journal titles.

Among the collection's strengths are holdings in U.S., British, Western European, and Mexican philately. Other important areas include detection of forgeries, state postal histories, and air mail philately.

There is good coverage for the British Commonwealth as well as South America. The collection has especially fine holdings in Confederate postal history.
