Hello. I am looking for information on Robert W. Scherer, an American who was a Captain (Air Force??) during WWII. He was a stamp collector and a student of postal history. During the 1950s and 60s, he was very active in the American Philatelic Society and exhibited in the area of postal history extensively (US, Canada, Sweden, Norway and probably other northern European countries as well). He developed a large display dealing with air mail via Iceland prior to WWII and called it "Vikings of the Air." Some years ago, this display was donated to the Spellman Philatelic Museum in Massachusetts. We are now reviving this display for a special presentation and are looking for biographic information on Capt. Scherer. If you have any suggestions on where to look or who to contact, please contact me at the email address listed with this message. Thank you.
