Biographies of People of the World on Stamps by Paul G. Partington and Dr. Udo Skladny - appears to be a 'working' copy
The following index allows you to find various sections of an alphabetical listing of identified individuals on postage stamps. Most well-known nationals are normally honored by their own countries, but they are unknown elsewhere, so this listing will include individuals not listed in many reference sources. Paul G. Partington of Whitter, California collected much of this biographical information over many years. Dr. Udo Skladny is a German Protestant theologian, now retired, who lives in Berlin, Germany. For many years he also has compiled information on important people on postage stamps. He has refined many of our listings and continues to contribute much of the research information.
There are many individuals listed where we are unable to locate biographical information. If you know about additional information, please submit it by mail to [email protected] com or [email protected]
