American Philatelic Society Hall of Fame
The APS Hall of Fame award was founded at the 1940 American Philatelic Society Convention. The award is intended to honor those deceased philatelists who have made significant contributions during their lifetime to the field of philately.
The award is not to be confused with the society's Luff Award which is presented to outstanding philatelists who are alive at the time of award.
Requirements for the APS Hall of Fame are:
- only deceased collectors may be considered for nomination
- those nominated must have made "outstanding contributions to the advancement of national or international philately."
Philatelists who have received the APS Hall of Fame award are listed below. Note that some years have no nominees selected.
