The American Philatelic Society has hired Jeffrey Stage as an editorial associate for its monthly magazine, The American Philatelist, and for Philatelic Literature Review, the quarterly journal of the American Philatelic Research Library.
Stage fills the position left vacant by the departure of longtime editorial associate Bonny Farmer earlier this year.

According to a press release issued by the society, Stage previously worked for The Post-Standard and Herald-Journal in Syracuse, N.Y., and wrote a stamp collecting column for 18 years. He received the Lidman Prize from the Council of Philatelic Organizations in 1987 for writing in a nonphilatelic publication. He also wrote a philatelic mystery novel, Chasing Jenny, published in 2013.
"I consider it an honor to work for the APS," Stage said. "It combines my skills as a journalist with my all-time favorite hobby. It couldn’t be more perfect."
"We look forward to working with Stage's talents to engage our members, further promote the hobby, and reach out to new collectors through social media," American Philatelist editor Jay Bigalke was quoted as saying in the April 30 press release.
