The Ephemera Society of America

The Ephemera Society of America logo

About Us The Ephemera Society of America, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed in 1980 to cultivate and encourage interest in ephemera and the history identified with it; to further the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of ephemera by people of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of interest; to promote the personal and institutional collection, preservation, exhibition, and research of ephemeral materials; to serve as a link among collectors, dealers, institutions, and scholars; and to contribute to the cultural life of those who have an interest in our heritage as a nation or a people, both nationally and internationally. The Society sponsors an annual convention that includes seminars, exhibitions, a superb ephemera show and sale, workshops, collector forums, and other conference events. The Society?s Web site ? www.ephemerasociety.org ? connects with thousands of visitors seeking information about ephemera, provides contacts with other collectors and ephemera-related businesses, and includes notices of Society events. All members-?individuals, libraries, corporations, colleges, historical societies, and museums?receive The Ephemera Journal, a 32-page four color publication published three times a year; an annual Membership Directory; the eNews, and special admission to Society-sponsored functions. Members also enjoy the camaraderie and shared interests of fellow ephemerists. Visit The Ephemera Society of America online
