The Baltimore Philatelist
The Baltimore Philatelist is the official journal of the Baltimore Philatelic Society. It was first published in 1936 as a bimonthly newsletter. During World War II editions were scarce. After the war the editions gradually increased to a monthly publication. The size was 8.5" x 11." This size was continued until the May/June issue of 2002 when the format changed to a smaller size and it is now published on a quarterly basis.
Each edition contains news of the Society, a three month calendar, BALPEX information and various other updates. In addition, there are plenty of philatelic articles just like those first issues in 1936. As always, the editor is looking for material to publish.
You do not have to be a member of the Society to submit an article. We accept all articles either in digital or hardcopy form. Word or pdf format is preferred for digital files. If your article contains graphics, 300 dpi .tif or .jpg is preferred.
