The Philately of New Zealand - Innovation Born of Necessity, 1855-1955, Maynard Sundman Lecture 2011

Robert P. Odenweller, recipient of many philatelic awards, spoke as part of the 9th annual Maynard Sundman lecture on February 5, 2011. Located halfway around the globe from precious stamp-making supplies, New Zealand's postal service used ingenious methods to recover and reuse materials, inadvertently adding to the richness of the philately of New Zealand. Mr. Odenweller examined some of the innovative measures taken to reduce waste and to make the best use of the materials available, along with other pioneering efforts to meet growing postal demands. Ingenuity dictated ways to keep the system running, and created a fascinating array of varieties that interest us today. The video begins with a welcome from Donald Sundman, chair of the Postal Museum Council of Philatelists. Postal Museum curator Cheryl Ganz then introduces Mr. Odenweller.
