In Memoriam: Dr. Ray J. Ceresa - 10 June 2017

The Rossica Society is sad to announce the passing of Dr. Ray J. Ceresa, a long-time member of the Society. Dr. Ceresa was bestowed honored member status in the Society to recognize his many contributions to Russian philately. Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Ceresa is perhaps best known for his contributions to philatelic literature which included his multi-volume work on the Postage Stamps of Russia 1917 - 1923.
These works included detailed analysis of overprints, surcharges, and types of postage stamps from Armenia, Ukraine, Armies, Transcaucasia, and the RSFSR. He was especially focused on the identification of forgeries. He shared his knowledge of stamps from this period and forgeries through articles published in Russian philatelic society journals including the Rossica Journal, Pochta, the British Journal of Russian Philately, and the Post-Rider.
