In Memoriam Alexander Kaczmarczyk

Lebanon Philately reprint Wed Feb 18, 2009

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that I learned today of the passing away of
Alexander Kaczmarczyk after a long fight with illness.

Many in this group know him as the author of a book on the stamps of
Syria and Lebanon: “The Postal Issues of Syria, Lebanon and the
Alaouites 1919-1945″. He was also the foremost authority on the stamps
and postal history of the Arab Kingdom of Syria. His passing away is a
great loss to middle eastern philately.

I will always remember him as a great friend and a passionate collector
whose friendship and knowledge enriched the lives of those who knew him.
