INSIDE FLAP:About the Author:
Richard B. Graham is the dean of United States postal historians. Over the last four decades, his writing has appeared in a wide range of stamp journals and publications, and his behind-the-scenes editorial hand has shaped many excellent and important books. The quantity of Graham's output on postal history subjects is simply staggering. A retired engineer, Graham established his reputation for dispassionate research and accessible prose in the pages of such scholarly publications as The Confederate Philatelist and the Chronicle of the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society. To the stamp collecting community, he is best known as the author of the weekly Postal History column in Linn's Stamp News. Begun in 1982, this column has appeared in every issue of Linn's since then.
