The owner of Pederson Stamps, Richard Pederson (pictured at right), has been a stamp and cover collector since the age of 7. From the time the philatelic bug bit him as a youth, he has actively pursued his interest in stamps and covers, even during his years in college. Richard collects all U.S. emissions, including back-of-the-book and postal history, although he is primarily focused on stamps and postal history through the Liberty issue and is actively working on putting together an exhibit related to the Presidential issue of 1938. He also maintains a collection of Allied Military Government (AMG) issues and postal history and is the current editor of the A.M.G. Courier, the journal of the AMG Collectors' Club and also edits NSDA News, the newsletter of the National Stamp Dealers Association (NSDA). When time permits, he writes articles for the philatelic press, including MeKeel's and Stamps Magazine and U.S. Stamp News, The Prexie Era, Possessions, the A.M.G. Courier, and NSDA News, and plans to continue to do more writing in the future. Over the years, he has been involved with a number of stamp clubs and societies and is currently a life member of the American Philatelic Society (APS) and the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors (AAPE) and also is a member of: APS Writer's Unit #30; NSDA, American Topical Association (ATA); United States Stamp Society (USSS); United States Philatelic Classics Society (USPCS); Mourning Stamps and Covers Club; AMG Collector's Club; State Revenue Society (SRS); The Perfins Club; United Postal Stationery Society; American Numismatic Association (ANA); and Postal History Society.
