Philatelists stepping up for Boston 2026 World Expo

Noted philatelist, researcher, author, and international Grand Prix award-winning exhibitor Steven Walske is the latest major contributor to the Boston 2026 World Expo.

Walske is perhaps best known for his postal history expertise in a wide variety of areas including mail of San Francisco (1849-69), North American blockade-run mail (1775-1865), American transcontinental overland mail (1832-69) and French Franco-Prussian War mail (1870-71), knowledge of which was presented through his many highly awarded exhibits at the international level since the 1990s.

He has authored several articles and co-authored books on his specialties with luminaries including Richard Frajola, George Kramer and Scott Trepel, collecting honours along the way including the Royal Philatelic Society of London’s Crawford Medal in March 2016, awarded as the most valuable and original contribution to the study and knowledge of philately published in book form in the period.

Other donors who have contributed between $10,000 and $24,999 making Boston 2026 World Stamp Expo a reality include Murray Abramson, Gordon Eubanks, Vernon Morris, Tim O’Connor, Daniel Ryterband and Trepel. The Boston 2026 World Expo takes place May 23-30, 2026, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Full show details are available at
