Stamp Collecting is One Big History Lesson

According to Denny Donnell of Columbia, Missouri, "Stamp collecting is one big history lesson."

Denny and the Columbia Philatelic Society are featured in an article that appears on the Columbia Tribune website.

Last weekend at the Columbia Public Library, Denny and some other members of the society shared their love for stamps with younger generations by displaying their collections - each of which is its own history book writes reporter Parker Eshelman.

Fellow collector Scott Ward is quoted in the article as saying, "With technology like the Internet and e-mail, some kids are not learning the importance stamps play when mailing a letter. That’s where we come in."
