The Committee remains active with about 120 collectors interested in the stamps and postal history of the “Prexie Era” (1938 through the late-1950’s), including not only the 1938 Presidential Series (commonly known as the “Prexies”), but the Transport Airmails, the Famous Americans Series, as well as other stamps issued during this time period. The Presidential Era Committee publishes a newsletter The Prexie Era, edited by Louis Fiset, featuring original articles written by Committee members. The newsletter is distributed quarterly to members by snail mail or electronic mail. The latest issue, Number 69, features articles on “Air Mail to Pitcairn”, “Circuitous Routing to South Africa During WWII”, and “A History of the USS Phoenix.” A compilation disk featuring past issues of the Newsletter is available for purchase in CD format. In addition committee members act as consultants to the editors of the Scott Catalog to help value Prexie postal history.
