San Francisco Chapter
The San Francisco Chapter is a group of individuals that mutually agree to gather once a month in a round table format for discussions on Western postal history. We are a 50+ year old organization and we have no officers, no organization, and no dues. We normally gather at the Marine Memorial Hotel in San Francisco. During these COVID times, we are gathering via Zoom sessions. Mike Serdy conducts and moderates our Zoom session via a professional Zoom license he has and makes it available to the group gratis. The group publishes a monthly newsletter and has just released a second edition of its Western Postal History Bibliography, a project undertaken and coordinated by Steve Johnson. A new feature of our monthly gatherings are a short presentation of 5 to 15 minutes on some aspect of Western Postal History.
Anyone with an interest in Western postal history is welcome to attend our gatherings. We asked that you register at least two days prior the the meeting by sending an E-Mail to the above E-Mail address. This way you will receive an E-Mail with the Zoom link approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of a gathering; all one has to do is click on the link to join..
