HIV/AIDS The Blair Henshaw Philatelic Collection

The Blair Henshaw HIV/AIDS Philatelic Collection web site celebrates the work of Blair Henshaw stamp collector, AIDS activist, and the man responsible for successfully lobbying the Canadian federal government to issue an HIV/AIDS stamp. The site outlines his life, his fight for a Canadian HIV/AIDS stamp, and displays a selection of the HIV/AIDS stamps which he collected.

It also displays, under "Other Materials", a number of other HIV/AIDS related materials he collected, including: first day covers, cinderellas (thematic stamps that are not official postage stamps), post cards, and telephone cards.

The materials on display here represent only a selection of those available in the Blair Henshaw Philatelic Collection held in Special Collections and Rare Books, W.A.C. Bennett Library, Simon Fraser University.
