The year was 1948. In Brooklyn, Neil Stack, a 36 year old accountant, was occupying his spare time with his collection of Irish postage stamps. He was quite enthusiastic in his collecting, working towards a complete collection of Irish issues. Like many collectors at the time he subscribed to Linn's Stamp News and particularly enjoyed a column written by Frank R.A. McCormick.
