If you get in touch with APRL, or do an online search of their library listings, you can probably find the title there.

The SPA's predecessor organization, the Southern Philatelic Association, had as its "official organ" (as advertised in the American Philatelist in 1918) a publication called The Stamp Herald (AP, Vol XXXII, No 1, Oct 1918, p. 2).

I thought I would bump this ancient topic with a new cover I acquired.

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

Like anything which died pre-internet, it is tough to find information until enough time passes so that documents can be digitized without a copyright issue. Perhaps the journals will eventually get scanned and posted.

In my 20's when first joining anything philatelic for information, I joined the SPA and sadly it quietly passe when I was still in my 20's. The death was very quite with folks tight lipped.

My SPA journals and documents were sent to the Western Philatelic Library 15-20 years ago.

Timely resurgence of this thread. At a small 1-day show today, a dealer had a large flat-rate priority mail box packed full of SPA ephemera: brochures, decals, show ribbons, correspondence, etc., going back to the turn of the century, along with about 40 SPA cacheted covers. It was just interesting enough to pique my curiosity, and it didn't break the bank. I don't know what I'll do with it other than image most of it.

Sounds like a possible exhibit.
