Archives of The Maine Philatelist


We are gathering information on the back issues of The Maine Philatelist and its precursor publications, going back over eighty years. Our goal is to make all of the backfiles available online here, eventually. Here is an extremely modest start toward reaching that goal. Files are in PDF format, unless otherwise noted.

In these backfiles you can expect to find stories about Maine-related stamps, postal history, and events sponsored by MPS. The earliest issue that we possess is from 1939, but we think there may be earlier issues, going back to the 1920s. Soon we will be publishing a detailed inventory, with the hope of locating missing issues.

Thanks to Everett Parker, Kelvin Kindahl, and Max Lynds for supplying back issues for this effort. There are about 150 issues altogether -- that we know about -- and we will be adding issues steadily until everything that we can find and scan gets posted online here. We will be providing an index to these.
