The Boston 2026 World Expo received the first of two $5,000 donations from the Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History, Boston 2026 public relations chair Thomas Forunato said in a June 10 press release.

“The Spellman Museum is pleased to support the Boston 2026 World Expo,” Brian J. Howard, executive director of the museum, said. “For over sixty years, the museum has worked to promote philately and to be a repository for both national and worldwide postal history. This gift is indicative of the strong relationship between the Spellman and this hallmark event; we invite all show attendees to our facility on the Regis College campus during their time in Boston.”

Located on the campus of Regis College at 241 Wellesley St., in Weston, Mass., the Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History holds more than 2 million items, including stamps, covers and other postal-related items.

The museum was founded in 1961 to house the philatelic collection of Cardinal Francis Spellman. Since that time, it has added items from U.S. Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower, Army Gen. Matthew Ridgway and violinist Jascha Heifetz.

At the Boston 2026 World Expo, the museum will have a large booth and offer free evaluations of stamps and collections.

Boston 2026 World Expo will take place May 23-30, 2026, at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center. Show details can be found via the expo’s Facebook, X and Instagram pages.
