The Lithuania Philatelic Society (LPS) was founded in 1946 in Chicago, Illinois. It is a bilingual organization (English and Lithuanian). We currently have 120 active members of various ethnic origins, but predominantly Lithuanian. Most of the members reside in the United States, but we also have members in Europe (Lithuania, France, Germany), Canada, Japan and Australia. We hold membership meetings in Chicago at least once a year usually in November.
The Society’s journal, illustrated and comprehensive in scope, contains in-depth articles on various topics including postal history, classic and new issues, history of Lithuania, as well as society news. The journal is published in English on an annual basis distributed free of charge to society members and major libraries in Lithuania.
