Nancy Clark - 2008 Luff Award Winner

Nancy Clark is featured in a nice article that appears in the Barnstable-Register in Yarmouth Port, MA.

A retired music teacher, "Clark was only about five or six years old when her parents brought her along to a stamp show where they examined long lines of exhibits featuring rare and unique stamps while they expected little Nancy to entertain herself with a stamp book and a handful of stamps," according to reporter Jen Ouellette.

Ouellette writes, "Clark had a frustrating time trying to match the stamps she had in her lap with the ones pictured in the albums. Having had such a frustrating start, Clark wanted to make the hobby more appealing to youngsters and started to think up youth activities that could be presented at stamp shows and founded a number of stamp clubs in schools."

Clark will be presented today with the American Philatelic Society's 2008 Luff Award for Exceptional Contributions to Philately for her work with youths as well as other national and international involvement she’s had with philately including her weekly Internet radio show “APS Stamp Talk with Nancy Clark” on
