The U.S. Philatelic Classics Society (USPCS) board of directors met during the Great American Stamp Show in Sacramento, Calif., where they unanimously voted to donate $50,000 to the Boston 2026 World Expo.
Initially founded in 1948 by prominent philatelists interested in the 1851-57 U.S. three-cent Washington issue, the group’s scope eventually expanded to the entire classics period. The society adopted its present name in 1964 and is best known for its publication The Chronicle.
Elaborating on the donation, USPCS President David D’Alessandris said, “The Philatelic Classics Society supports Boston 2026 because our Board believes that the future of organized philately requires the support of all organizations to make the show a success and to secure our hobby into the future.”
Boston 2026 President Yamil Kouri added: “Boston 2026 is very grateful for the support of the Philatelic Classics Society, helping to make this country’s next international philatelic exhibition a major success. Boston 2026 hopes to secure the future of the hobby not only nationally but internationally. It takes a group effort, and the society’s sponsorship is a significant step in making this happen.”
The USPCS will be the show’s second “society major sponsor.”
The Boston 2026 World Expo takes place on May 23-30, 2026, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
