ATA one-page exhibition to be displayed through October

The American Topical Association (ATA) is displaying more than 200 virtual one-page exhibits, covering 13 topical and thematic categories, until Oct. 31.

The virtual exhibition opened during the recent Great American Stamp Show, held in person from Aug. 12-15 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in the Rosemont suburb of Chicago, Ill., by the ATA, American Philatelic Society and American First Day Cover Society.

Some of the many ATA exhibition highlights include:

  • a world history exhibit entitled “Canadian – Australia?” by Toronto’s Michel Houde;
  • a trio of exhibits in the philately, world history and U.S. history categories by Derwin Mak, also of Toronto; and
  • 14 Scout exhibits by Rajesh Anitha, of Madurai, India.
