APS regular Stamp Chat guest and Chatty Award winner, Rick Barrett, discusses how he first became involved in philately at a young age, and the influence that teachers, stamp shops, and libraries had in his engagement in the hobby growing up.
We also talk about Barrett’s book: Buffalo Cinderellas: The Gentleman, the Huckster, and the Pan American Exposition (also available through the APRL).
You can support the APS by purchasing Barrett's book from the APS.
