History

1977 April

 

The idea of creating a European Academy for Postal Studies, bringing together philately experts, post mark collectors, maximaphilists and cartophilists, as well as dealers, catalogue authors, editors-in-chief of specialist journals and presidents of federations and associations was conceived by Jean Storch and Robert Françon. Their intention was to create a forum in which authors of postal studies could meet and, if possible, forge friendships by hosting regular events at which members could meet to enjoy a shared meal in different cities across Europe. The ultimate objective was to arrive at a variety of different publications aimed at keeping European collectors up-to-date with the latest developments as well as providing reference books for the purpose of study and research.
