About Our Society

Founded as the Kansas City Philatelic Society on August 22, 1893, the Midwest Philatelic Society is organized to promote philately through education, the exchange of ideas, establishment of high standards, and the encouragement of philatelic interest within the community. Located in Kansas City, our society was organized under the laws of the State of Missouri as a Benevolent Corporation in 1938.

The stamp collecting interests of our members are perhaps as varried as our number of members, including postal and revenue issues of numerous countries, topical collections, covers, postal history, and special studies of individual stamps or sets of stamps. We welcome individuals of all levels of collecting experience, from begining collectors, to those returning to collecting, to experienced collectors, to nationally recognized philatelic experts. Our meetings are always open to guests.

Any person of good character is eligible to apply for membership. Just complete an application form and submit it, along with the appropriate fee, to the club’s Treasurer.
