Please join the National Postal Museum for a moderated discussion about the postal history of WWII with Kees Adema and Jeffrey Groeneveld on November 6th at the National Postal Museum.

Coffee will be served at 11:30 near the Benjamin Franklin statue outside the conference room.

Kees Adema is an internationally known postal historian and author with five books and some 75 articles and papers to his credit. During his many presentations letters from his own collection  illustrate lesser known subjects related to World War II. The latest of his books, written with co-author Jeffrey Groeneveld, is The Paper Trail which looks at the war in Holland and its Colonies through mail and documents. Adema received the highest awards for original research, the Luff Award, the Earl of Crawford Medal, the Costerus Knighthood and the Lindenberg Medal and was elected to sign the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists, philately’s highest honor.

Jeffrey Groeneveld, a renowned philatelist in the Netherlands, has regularly written for Dutch philatelic magazines on a variety of subjects for more than 35 years. He is one of the country’s leading promoters of youth philately. As a collector he specializes in both thematic and postal history, while focusing on the Second World War. His thematic collection on the four Dutch queens was awarded a gold medal in Essen/London. In 2018 The Paper Trail, written in close co-operation with Kees Adema, was published. The book was awarded Large Gold medals at international stamp exhibitions in Verona and Stockholm. Earlier this year Jeffrey Groeneveld was made a Fellow of The Royal Philatelic Society London.
