Society Welcomes New Penny Post Editor
The Carriers and Locals Society is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has appointed Casey Jo White the new Editor of the Penny Post. This is the Society’s award-winning philatelic journal dedicated to postal history of carriers, local posts, independent mail companies and eastern expresses. Casey has said her goals are to continue to publish a high-quality journal with in-depth research articles that reach out to new collectors and novice researchers.
Casey graduated from Franklin College with a Journalism minor and English major. Casey has served as the Society’s webmaster and is responsible for the Online Reference Collection on pennypost.org. She has authored articles for the Penny Post and blogs for the United States Philatelic Classics Society website. She also has given presentations for the American Philatelic Society and in 2021 won the APS Carter Award for Outstanding Young Adult Philatelist.
Casey follows in the footsteps of Larry Lyons, who had been the editor for eighty-eight issues over 22 years. Larry’s contributions as editor and author of over 175 articles made the Penny Post a consistent large gold award winner in philatelic journal competitions. Society members have been fortunate to enjoy and benefit from Larry’s stewardship and many excellent articles.
