George W. Angers Memorial Award
In memory of this AAMS co-founder who, for almost four decades, rendered
outstanding and unselfish service to the hobby of
aerophilately and to the American Air Mail Society,
this award is presented to a person who has rendered
outstanding service to aerophilately.
The award is not restricted to members of the
American Air Mail Society.
The George W. Angers Memorial Award is for
outstanding service to aerophilately. Outstanding service is characterized by a distinguished and prominent
role in activities serving to increase participation
in and the recognition,
popularity, prominence and importance of
aerophilately, evidenced by promotion, publicity,
contributions, leadership, exhibiting, programs,
seminars, publications or other significant
aerophilatelic activities pursuant to the research,
study, documentation and preservation of
Service in organized aerophilately, nationally and
internationally, is included in the criteria for
this award. However, service to the American Air
Mail Society is the criteria for the Walter J.
Conrath Memorial Award and should not be a major consideration for the
George W. Angers Memorial Award.
The award is international in scope and is
not restricted to members of AAMS.
This award was discontinued in 2012 as its
criteria essentially duplicate those of the
Aerophilatelic Hall of Fame.
