WELCOME to the
The Knoxville Philatelic Society webpage is designed to be a resource for stamp collectors in the Knoxville, Tennessee area. It contains information about local philatelic events, clubs, meetings, shows, and other fun stuff. Hopefully, stamp collectors from other regions will also find this site a useful and fun place to visit. Everyone is encouraged to submit content and suggestions.
We would greatly appreciate your feedback on the content of this site. Please let us know if you find any errors or inaccuracies. We would also like to include original content from the stamp collectors who would like to see their hard work displayed on the web. Therefore, if you have articles that you have written, exhibits you have created, presentations you have put together, or even short (less than 10 minutes) videos, we would love to give them a home on the web. Please provide your contact information so that we may give you credit for your work and direct any questions or comments to you.

KPS Meeting via Zoom
The January 5 KPS regular meeting will feature a program by Bob Zeigler, president of the American Philatelic Society. Mr. Zeigler will be talking about his interest in the philately of Switzerland and bring us updates from APS. The meeting will be on Zoom and recorded. You will not want to miss this meeting.
Following APS President Zeigler's presentation President Brent Marquand will conduct the business session of the meeting.
Fourteen (14) KPS Members attended the November 17 Zoom KPS Meeting. Tom Broadhead's "Indigenous Peoples" presentation drew a lot of additional information on this subject and discussion from attendees. The business session lead by President Brent Marquand was productive. KnoxPex 2021 discussion ranged from a live stamp show, a virtual show or a combination of the two.
Watch here for details in your email inbox for this meeting.
