National Postal Museum is the repository of a number of exceptional
philatelic and three-dimensional airmail collections. Among
these treasures is the Emma Batchelor collection, materials
from the life and flights of Amelia Earhart and artifacts
from airmail's early days donated by Benjamin Lipsner,
the first Superintendent of the Air Mail Service (1918-1919).
In addition to specialized airmail collections,
the Museum has a comprehensive collection of U.S. airmail
stamps and postal stationery materials, an array of airmail
covers from the 19th century to the present.
