The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC) recently announced Robin Harris has been appointed as editor of The Canadian Philatelist, its flagship publication.
Founded in 1950, The Canadian Philatelist is the official journal of The RPSC. Members receive six issues yearly as part of their membership. Each issue of The Canadian Philatelist contains compelling philatelic articles; society business, reports and news; general philatelic news; auction and events calendars; and meeting notices.
“The RPSC is pleased to have Robin as editor of our publication,” said RPSC President Ed Kroft. “I thank Herb Colling, our past editor, for all of his work and contributions. The RPSC encourages submissions to the journal from all philatelists.”
Harris, a Fellow of The RPSC, is well known for his contributions to Canadian philately. He is the webmaster of The RPSC website and editor of the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps. He also writes the “Around the World” column for Canadian Stamp News and previously sat on Canada Post’s Stamp Advisory Committee.
In addition, he edits the British North America Philatelic Society Elizabethan study group’s newsletter Corgi Times and has just won the John S. Siverts Best Study Group newsletter award for a fourth time.
Harris has been collecting stamps for nearly 50 years. His interests include but are not limited to Canada, particularly the Elizabethan II era; Great Britain Machins; United Nations; and the U.S.
