Greetings, and welcome to the Chemistry and Physics on Stamps Study Unit website. I hope that you have a pleasant visit. We are continuing to develop the content for this site and are very interested in your input. Please feel free to send us suggestions!

I am pleased to announce that David White will be joining officer ranks of CPOSSU and assuming editorship of the journal this fall. David has recently retired and should have lots of time to devote to the unit and get us back on schedule. I have asked Dan to finish the current issue and get it to David Hendricker for publication next week. David White will take over with the next issue after that.

Dan has done a truly outstanding job of raising the bar for what the journal looks like. I think back to the first cut and paste photocopied issue and am amazed at how far we have come. Dan has been instrumental in making that happen and I am forever grateful to him for taking over when Foil stepped down. He will stay with our ranks as “Editor Emeritus” to help guide David through the transition process. Dan has contributed some great content over the years and I truly hope he will continue to in the years to come. In fact Dan and I may be the youngest members of the unit and I hope we both have many years of involvement left in us. I am forever grateful to how good Dan made my ‘US Minerals on Stamps” article look.
