Rossica Logo

"The Rossica Society" was born in Igalo, Yugoslavia on 14 April 1929. The brainchild of Eugene Arkhangelsky, a prominent aero-philatelist and philatelic author, its early adherents were mostly émigré White Russians who fled their country after the October 1917 coup and scattered to the four corners of the globe.  The political, economic and military upheavals in the 1930s and 1940s chased Rossica’s center of gravity from Yugoslavia to the Baltic States and then to Shanghai, where the war in the Pacific prevented it from distributing its journal, and WWII wiped out much of its membership. The Society collapsed in early 1942 and took a decade to reconstitute itself, this time in the U.S., where it remains based to this day.

The purpose of the society then, as now, was to encourage the apolitical
study of Russian philately, postal history and allied collecting fields such as revenues, vignettes, paper seals, scrip and picture postcards. The 501(c)3 non-profit organization does this by publishing the
award-winning “Rossica Journal of Russian Philately” and a number of
book-length translations and monographs, participating in exhibitions, and
making its library ­ the largest concentrated holding of Russian and
related-areas philatelic literature in the West ­ available to its membership."




The Mexico-Elmhurst Philatelic Society International is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and promotion of the philately of Mexico. Established in 1950, its membership now spans the globe but most reside in the United States and Mexico. MEPSI publishes the award-winning journal MEXICANA which contains articles on most aspects of Mexican philately. Membership benefits include the journal, sales circuits, society auctions, extensive lending library and presentation materials, expertization service, and fun annual meetings held in conjuction with major stamps shows in the US and Mexico.
