He wrote article in American Philatelist. May 2002. titled "Mr. Zip-His life/Times". Great article with wealth of info on zip blocks. Contacted APS for help and they say that currently he is not a member.

JRS, contact the American Philatelic Society. The library will make you a copy of the article (there is a cost for it, but not much) and mail it to you.

I don't think you have to be a member. However, if you are serious about collecting, I highly recommend becoming a member. There are many advantages.

When you reach 50 posts, send me an email if you are interested and I'll be happy to sponsor you.

You are looking for Lewis E. Tauber. He wrote the article about Mr. Zip. I'm fairly certain he has some articles in the Canada Archives. I hope that's what you were looking for! Good luck!

This article is listed on page 26 of the APS index. You can find it under "services" when going to www.stamps.org. Click on "American Philatelist" and then "AP archives". It is on page 26 as I said - the article is called M Zip his live and times.
The article is on page 414 of the May 2002 issue.

It is clear from the original post that the JRS has a copy of the article and is trying to make personal contact with the author.
