Unsung Heroes of the Scott Catalogue and a Hint of Things to Come

I've praised the Scott Classics Catalogue many times in this blog, but had little idea of who the people were behind the endeavor. An article in the February 21, 2011 Linn's helps put a face on its staff. According to the article, Bill (William A.) Jones has been the guiding force behind the catalog "to the point that where one could almost say it became his catalog." Mr. Jones has now retired and Donna Houseman has taken over many of his responsibilities. Ms. Houseman has worn several hats at Amos Publishing, including editor of the Scott Stamp Monthly. Stamp dealer and expertiser Sergio Sismondo continues to be a special consultant.

Although not specifically associated with the Classics Catalogue, Associate Editor Dave Akin is the "point man" in efforts to bring the Scott catalog online. The article promises that we will be hearing more about this project in the coming months.
