Suggested Polar and Polar Philately Links

Learn more about the hobby of polar philately, and the organized group of collectors called the American Society of Polar Philatelists, and other related links at This is Gary Pierson's page, and quite probably the single best Antarctic philately page on the net; superbly done.

Find more information about Antarctica in the New South Polar Times.   I need a link for this site. Anyone have one?  This link seems to be a replacement for the New South Pole Times

Visit the website of the American Polar Society.

Steve McLachlan's Antarctic Philately page. A delight! Great illustrations of covers, and very much a page where new collectors (or wannabes) can learn about this hobby, as well as see photos of some of the vessels we get covers from. Steve is also a stamp dealer, so you can actually buy some of the covers he has illustrated.

Polar covers and polar items as well as a web-shop from Matthias Bjerrang at    He also has a Svalbard postal history page at

Murray Lundberg's site about Arctic and Northern Culture, philatelic section.

I also suggest the Universal Ship Cancellation Society, which publishes the USCS Log, and often has articles of polar interest.  Their webpage is at

If you have suggestions for other great links, please let me know!
