Historical Sketch

The Texas Philatelic Association, Inc. (TPA) was founded in 1896 in San Antonio, Texas, when the enthusiasm for collecting stamps was on the rise. On November 13 of that year, a committee on organizing a new association consisting of Edward W. Heusinger, Joseph Mueller, Julius Jeremy, and others, met with a philatelic club established the same year and located in San Antonio, the Metropolitan Philatelic Club. At this meeting, Frederic Noyes as president, H.G. Askew and T.W. Robison as vice presidents, Edward W. Heusinger as secretary, and Emil Gerlich as treasurer were elected for temporary office and the Articles of Association were adopted. The first annual meeting took place the following year on April 21, 1897 in San Antonio. Thirteen years into its existence, on April 19, 1909, the TPA amended its articles of association with the clause that San Antonio would be henceforward the headquarters of the organization.

The first auction sale of TPA took place on December 14, 1914, in San Antonio under the management of G.W. Coryell, the Sales Superintendent at the time. In the 1920, the Texas Philatelic Association had a competitor philatelic organization, the Texas Philatelic Society, which was founded in 1920 by some members of the TPA out of their frustration with the association. TPA asked the new society to change their name but had no success. In May of 1922, TPA assimilated the society’s members to their own association, which was the end of the society’s existence. At the 28th annual meeting in Houston, Texas, from April 20 through 21, 1924, the existing constitution and by-laws were revised and newly adopted stating the change of the society’s status from Association to State Organization. On August 12, 1940 TPA incorporated for the first time under the laws of the State of Texas receiving the Charter No. 79425.

The Texas Philatelic Association developed into an umbrella organization for many other philatelic clubs and societies in Texas. The first chapter admitted was the Houston Stamp Collector’s Club at the 45th convention held in Dallas, Texas, from May 9 through 10 in 1941. On August 31, 1966, the American Philatelic Society issued a certificate granting the Texas Philatelic Society its life membership with Chapter Number 38, with the official APS number being APS# 0632-049588. In January of 1972 the association incorporated for the second time and in March of 1974 the charter was forfeited due to failure of properly filing franchise reports. The board of directors of TPA thought itself of good standing and was not aware of the problem until 1979. Once the problem was recognized and after careful deliberations, the charter was re-instated on November 5, 1979 with the charter no. 497 197-1.

The primarily function of the Texas Philatelic Association is the encouragement of the collecting of stamps and the research of the history of postal service as well as the collection and distribution of philatelic materials and the financial assistance of authors and researchers through grants and scholarships. The latter are furthermore supported through the Texas Philatelic Association Foundation, Inc., that was established on August 4, of 1975 with the charter number 305108, which benefits from the 501 (c) (3) status of tax exemption. It is the Foundation’s declared goal to help through the donations made to them the establishment of research libraries and laboratories for supporting the philatelic research in all its aspects.

The Texas Philatelic Association is affiliated with the Southwest Philatelic Foundation, host of the TEXPEX shows, and the Wineburgh Philatelic Research Library (WPRL) at The University of Texas at Dallas being the official archive of the association. Today, the TPA is a very active association that enjoys a large membership counting over five-hundred and it is the publisher of The Texas Philatelist, the association’s bimonthly journal. In April of 2008, TPA held its 112th annual convention in Dallas, Texas.

Scope and Content

This collection contains documents, correspondence, newsletters, memoranda, clippings, reports, pamphlets, minutes, records, photographs, ephemera, and other materials created and/or collected over a period of time by Jane King Fohn, President of the Texas Philatelic Association, Inc. from Apr. 7, 2002 to Apr. 8, 2006. The Texas Philatelic Association, Inc. Records (TPA) are housed in twenty-six manuscript boxes and eight non-standard boxes of various sizes totaling 17.91 linear feet.

The collection appears to be a new accession. However, it arrived at the Wineburgh Philatelic Research Library (WPRL) in three major donations in 1994, 1998, and in 2006. Accessioning and processing did not commence until May of 2007, due to the large quantity and diversity of the materials.

The donor arranged the materials, given to her by numerous entities, as it was recommended by the curator of Special Collections of The University of Texas at Dallas at the time of the first accession, which is being reflected in the President Series. The processing archivist kept original order where possible. Some of the materials were pulled by a third party and used for other purposes and a small number of documents arrived after the last donation in 2006. These loose materials were arranged by topic and incorporated into the already existing arrangement, which is the case for the Rex “Jim” Stever and the Larry Sall Papers. The collection was arranged differently by the donor since the President Craig Eggleston but was rearranged by the archivist like the files of the previous presidents for uniformity. Two record center boxes (2.5 linear ft.) of original and official TPA publications were pulled from the records and are being processed for cataloging to go to the WPRL stacks.

The archivist identified five series with the first series being the Association Records series, which is further organized into three subseries: 1. History/Foundation of TPA, 2. Organization, and 3. Activities.

Subseries 1. consists of the American Philatelic Society chapter certificate, the TPA’s Archive Inventory, the TPA’s Certificate of Incorporation, the Chapter History of various chapters of the TPA, miscellaneous materials, and notes about the history and Board of Directors of TPA. Of particular interest is the Quick Reference Chart and Historical Outline compiled by Edward W. Heusinger in box 1, folder 6, which records a detailed history of the foundation of the association, meeting places, presidents from 1896 through 1946, who served as secretary and/or treasurer and the name of the official publication at the given time.

Subseries 2. deals with the Texas Philatelic Association Foundation, Inc. their incorporation records, the original by-laws with various drafts, correspondence, budget, tax forms, articles, minutes, and treasurer reports. This subseries also covers the financial records of the TPA mainly through the treasurer’s financial records ranging from 1896 through 2006 and furthermore the various departments such as that of the secretary, the sales department, the slide program, the general assembly, the membership, the nomination committee, and the editor of The Texas Philatelist as well as listings of the official publication of the TPA. More materials concerning theses departments can be found in the second series.

Subseries 3. mirrors the various activities that the TPA engaged in such as awards, the TEXPEX exhibit from 1996, the History of the Texas Philatelic Association and the San Antonio Philatelic Association. Shown through Convention Memorabilia celebrating the 100th anniversary of both associations, TPA Grants given by the association, and other TEXPEX conventions held from 1982 through 1994.

The second, largest, and most important series is the Presidents Series, which is organized in thirty-nine subseries chronologically by presidents served from 1896-2006. Depending on the documents available, each subseries is organized on the folder level in Exhibition/Convention, Reports, Minutes, Membership, Programs, Editor, and Chapters. Materials include guidelines, convention programs, brochures, certificates, awards, photographs, first day covers, ephemera, and memorabilia; reports from the various departments such as necrology report, treasurer report, secretaries report; minutes from the General Membership Assembly, Annual Membership Meeting, Board of Directors meeting, and the TPA Foundation Board of Trustees; membership directories, membership applications; show committee, Junior Program, Slide Programs, Study Group, and TPA auctions; editor’s report, and matters concerning the publication of The Texas Philatelist; chapters affiliated to the TPA are containing, documents, convention and exhibition programs and brochures, membership matters, correspondence, photographs, ephemera and memorabilia, first day covers, newsletters, and awards.

The documents from subseries 1. Frederick Noyes, through 23. Everett L. Frazior, contain very few materials. There are no documents or other materials available in these records for Otto Staaker, president from 1898 to 1899, and for W.W. Miller, serving from 1925 through 1927.
