Janet Klug is a lifelong collector who specializes in British Pacific and military postal history. She also has a long, deep-seated interest in history. She writes, “Collecting stamps and letters from bygone days is a way for me to connect on a very personal level with people and events from those times. History is not just about famous people and events. It also encompasses ordinary people doing ordinary things, overcoming the challenges that happen in their lives, surviving and thriving.”
Ms. Klug is presently President of the American Philatelic Society, and a member of the National Postal Museum's Council of Philatelists. She has served on the Board of Directors of several philatelic organizations, and has chaired the Committee on the Accreditation of National Exhibitions and Judges for the American Philatelic Society. She previously managed computer departments for several corporations.
