Boston 2026 World Expo is pleased to announce that it has received a $5,000 donation from the Collectors Club of Chicago (CCC) Board of Directors. The Boston 2026 executives are grateful to Bill Maddocks, CCC President, Melanie Rogers, CCC Secretary, and the rest of the board of the CCC for their generous support of Boston 2026.
Founded in the late 1920s The Collectors Club of Chicago has as its primary objectives the documentation, preservation, advancement and promotion of philately through education, study, research and services.  It is best known for its publication prowess of high quality original research works, catering to a wide assortment of philatelic interests.
Today meetings are held at the club’s stately four-story row house property, The Cabeen House, on North Dearborn Street in the ‘Gold Coast’ district of downtown Chicago.  Most current members reside outside of greater Chicago, including many countries overseas.
The property also houses the largest philatelic library collection in the midwestern United States containing books, philatelic journals, CDs, post office publications, auction catalogs and a wealth of other material.  It is available for members as well as, “anyone in the philatelic community demonstrating a need to conduct philatelic research requiring philatelic literature.”
Societies and philatelic groups considering participation in Boston 2026 are encouraged to contact Mark Schwartz, Boston 2026 Society Chair, as soon as possible to express their interests.
