Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History

"Stamps are miniature documents of human history. They are the means by which a country gives sensible expression to its hopes and needs; its beliefs and ideals. They mirror the past and presage the future. They delineate cultural attainments, industrial works, domestic, civil and social life. In a word, these vignettes give a vivid picture of the world, its occupants and their multifarious endeavors."
Francis Cardinal Spellman, c. 1950
 The Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History is located at Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts. It's an interesting Web site, and I'm sure it's a fascinating museum.
