In this issue

Hugh Morgan AC doesn’t always find time for philately. But following a passion he developed as a nine-year-old, he made the time and found ways to indulge in his fascinating hobby. The result, the astounding Morgan Collection, which also contained gems acquired by his stamp-collecting father, was, by the time Mr Morgan had finished forming it, one of the world’s finest collections of Commonwealth of Australia philatelic treasures. Our cover story provides insights into Hugh Morgan’s life and philatelic times and what now drives him to sell his most prized possession.
