Symposia and Lectures
November 1 - 2, 2018:
The Tenth Winton M. Blount Postal History Symposium: “WWI and its Immediate Aftermath”
National Postal Museum
Much of the world was covered in the paper presentations and philatelic exhibits. The topics varied widely from the postal workplace and logistics, from propaganda to censorship, and from funding the war to adapting to shortages. A public lecture on World War I letters was held on the night of October 31. Curator-led visits to the exhibition My Fellow Soldiers were offered during the symposium.
