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.
