ViewBosnia-Herzegovina: The 1878-1919 Bosnia-Herzegovina Postal SystemWilliam O. Maddocks, CCCCollectors Club of Chicago ExhibitsThe mostly Serbian Orthodox population of Bosnia-Herzegovina revolted in 1875 against Ottoman Turkish Muslim rule. Military intervention by Serbia, Russia and the Great Powers in July of 1878 resulted in a cessation of hostilities and the Treaty of Berlin. Article XXV of that treaty authorized Austro-Hungarian forces to institute military administration of the provinces. Following the directive, in August 1878, and only after some weeks of heavy resistance, Austro-Hungarian forces occupied Bosnia and Herzegovina. By use of contemporary postal history, this exhibit illustrates the evolution of the postmarks and the development of the postal system under the 40 years long Austro-Hungarian intervention: Occupation (1878-1908), Annexation (1908 – 1918), and the post-WWI provisional use of both intact and obliterated obsolete Bosnia-Herzegovina postal devices (1918 – 1919)....X

ViewCentral America: The Postal History of the 1500s-1763 Early Colonial PeriodDr. James P. Mazepa, CCCCollectors Club of Chicago ExhibitsKing Ferdinand II appointed Don Lorenzo Galíndez de Carvajal as the first Correo Major de las Indias (Postmaster General of the Indies) in May 1514, the appointment being in perpetuity to Galíndez and his successors. Conquistador Pedro de Alvarado established the city of Santiago de los Caballeros de Guatemala in 1524. In January 1541, King Charles V decreed that mail to the Indies be free and delivered without restrictions, and established a system of regular dispatches by Navíos de Aviso. In 1544, the Spanish Indies was divided into the Viceroyalties of Nueva España, Nueva Grenada, Perú, Rio de la Plata, the Capitanía de Guatemala, and the Capitanía de Cuba. Beginning in 1604, the position of Correo Mayor of the Viceroyalties and Capitanias was sold to the highest bidder, the first Correo Mayor assuming the office in 1620. This exhibit illustrates the postal services available in Spanish Central America during the early formative years,...X
ViewCeylon: 1864-1903 Ceylon ‘Too Late’ MarkingsKathryn J.

The post offices advertised their standard next day delivery capabilities, and used the ‘Too Late’ postal markings as a countermeasure to potential complaints of delayed deliveries. The ‘Too Late’ handstamps remained in use until 1903, after which time they were withdrawn....X

ViewCeylon: Money Order and Savings Bank Postmarks of CeylonKathryn J. Johnson, CCCCollectors Club of Chicago ExhibitsAbbreviated as ‘M.O. & S.B.’, ‘M.O. & S.

In practice, through cancellers appear to have a multiplicity of usages. This exhibit examines the different cancel types, and illustrates the various uses of these cancels. The exhibit explains ‘how’ and ‘why’ the cancels were used, and how those usages changed over a period of time.

ViewGermany: Die Wiederaufnahme des Auslandspostverkehrs in Deutschland 1945-1949Dr. Walter T. Farber, CCCCollectors Club of Chicago ExhibitsThis exhibit traces the resumption of international mail in and out of Germany from the collapse of the Third Reich (May 1945) up to the founding of the Bundesrepublik Deutschland (1949). At that point, Germany had become a respectable member of the international community again, and its postal connections with the rest of the world had basically become normal. The exhibit focusses on the gradual re-introduction of all types of international mail, including, but not limited to, private letters, official mailings, registry, special delivery, parcel post, and air mail. Special consideration is given to early mail channels for Displaced Persons and Prisoners of War, as well as to the role of censorship, to problems concerning individual countries, and to the validity of cash-paid markings and local stamp issues on international mail....X
