The Luff Award is awarded by the American Philatelic Society (commonly known as the APS) for meritorious contributions to philately by living philatelists.

Established[edit]

The award was established in 1940 in memory of John N. Luff, distinguished philatelist and president of the APS from 1907 to 1909.

Basis of the award[edit]

The recipient of the award must be a living philatelist. Three Luff Awards are usually presented each year – one each for:

  • distinguished philatelic research
  • exceptional contributions to philately
  • outstanding service to the American Philatelic Society

Honorees[edit]

Luff Awards were presented by the society, starting in 1940 and continuing to this day. During some years, awards were not presented for various reasons.
