A Report on ARIPEX 2013
by Len McMaster

The USPPS had a Society table and meeting at ARIPEX 2013, held April 19–21 in Mesa, AZ. At the meeting Geoff Brewster presented several items as part of the "show and tell" format and we briefly discussed the reprint of his Philippine Flights series the Society is releasing on CD. While there were no U.S. possessions competitive exhibits, Geoff had an 11-frame non-competitive exhibit of all the U.S. possessions stamps, an excellent display of our collecting interests. We had several individuals stop and talk to us at our table, signing up seven new members, including James Green (CA), Steve Gross (AZ), Larry Weinstock (OR), John Wynns (AZ), Max Schwartz (TN), Bill Woytowich (AZ), and Jon Krupnick (FL).

USPPS Lifetime Achievement Award Presented

At the ARIPEX awards banquet Saturday evening, I had the honor of presenting Geoff Brewster with a USPPS Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1978 Gil Plass started the USPPS by himself, and was editor of our journal, Possessions, for 14 years, 1978–1992, producing Whole Nos. 1–56. Geoff Brewster was appointed our first president by Gil and served 8 years from 1978–1986. With Gil and Ken Koller, he wrote the USPPS constitution and aggressively promoted our new society, publicizing it in the general philatelic press, arranging for USPPS meetings at stamp shows, and serving as our representative to the APS (Affiliate #99), a position he still holds today.

In 2002 Geoff became president again, serving until 2010. He served a total of 16 years as USPPS president, almost half our 34-year existence.
 
Geoff was editor of Possessions for ten years from 1999 to 2010, responsible for 43 Whole Nos. (71–113). Geoff was also vice-president from 1990 to 1994, and served as secretary-treasurer from 2006 to 2010. From 2002 until 2010 he essentially held our organization together single-handedly.

As an author, he has been responsible for more than 200 articles in Possessions alone, making significant contributions to the study of U.S. possession stamps and postal history.

Soon after the show I received the following note from Geoff: "I wish to thank the USPPS for the award it recently gave me, not so much for the item itself—which is certainly attractive and of fine quality—as for the sentiment behind it. I only wish our founder Gilbert N. Plass was still here so that the USPPS could honor him at least similarly, for having firmly established our base and by excellent example having blazed our path for the future."

We plan to have a joint table and meeting with the IPPS at the 2013 APS StampShow being held August 8–11, at the Delta Center, 200 West Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, WI . Craig Eggleston will give a talk on "American censorship of civilian mail during World War One: new research from the censorship office in Manila" at our meeting. We also hope to present both single- and multi-frame exhibit awards for the best U.S. possessions exhibits.
