The Ephemera Society of America, Inc. was established in 1980 as a non-profit organization devoted to furthering the study, preservation, and appreciation of ephemera and to serve as a link among collectors, scholars, and dealers.  Over the years the society has sponsored fairs, conferences, symposiums, exhibitions, and less formal regional meetings.  In addition, the ephemera society maintains an active publications program, including a quarterly newsletter entitled Ephemera News (ceased publication), the monthly E-News newsletter, a Journal containing substantive articles on ephemera, several monographic studies, posters and other ephemeral items, and a members only directory.  In 1994, the society published a book, Rewards of Merit: Tokens of a Child’s Progress and a Teacher’s Esteem as an Enduring Aspect of American Religious and Secular Education, by Patricia Fenn and Alfred P. Malpa.  In 2005, to help celebrate the society’s twenty-fifth birthday, there was a special week long gathering of members in England to visit collections of ephemera at Oxford University, where the John Johnson Collection is located, the Centre for Ephemera Studies at the University of Reading, London’s Guildhall, and the Museum of the City of    London.  Membership has grown from a few dozen in 1980 to a peak of about 1,000, including both individual and organizational members.  The society’s web site is at





The records of the Ephemera Society of America date from 1980, but are strongest beginning in the late 1990s and into the 2000s.  Recent acquisitions have included early society memorabilia, including posters, programs, and other items associated with the early activities of the group.  Included in the society’s records are administrative papers, copies of society publications, records and keepsakes of society sponsored events, material on ephemera societies in Great Britain, Canada, and Australia, and publications not issued by the society but which cover ephemera related topics. 





The records of the ephemera society are arranged in three series:

I.        Business papers and correspondence;

II.     Meetings and conferences of the Ephemera Society of America; and

III.  Publications. 


Publications are broken down into six sub-series:

A. Ephemera Society of America;

B. Ephemera Society (U.K.);

C. Ephemera Society of Canada;

D. Ephemera Society of Australia

E. other publications; and

F. Books.


[Auction catalogs were once part of the collection; however, at the request of the ESA, these were removed from the collection in April 2018.] 





The materials are mostly in English.





Collection is open to the public.  Copyright restrictions may apply.





Records are owned by the Ephemera Society of America and are on long term deposit at Winterthur in the Joseph Downs Collection of Manuscripts and Printed Ephemera.
