"I'm about halfway through writing my book on the albums and folders produced by Whitman 1940-78. This is the third volume in my comprehensive study of album/folder
publishers and their product lines.
"If anyone has photos, literature or other memorabilia they'd be willing to have included in my book, I'd like to hear from them. The same goes for unique stories
about the production and/or marketing of these items."
"Above is a printing plate for a Sixth Edition coin folder, circa 1966. The other shows a prototype album called Heritage that Whitman planned as a replacement for the
Bookshelf line, circa 1975. Both items are from my own collection."
Can anyone help? The story of Whitman's products is inextricably linked with the history of the hobby in the U.S. Please share whatever stories, information and material
you may have. Dave can be reached at DavidWLange@outlook.com . -Editor
