About Al Kugel

Reading this memorial page for Al should give you an idea of his massive contributions to military postal history.

Al supplied many of his exhibits and articles for posting on this website. After his passing, the MPHS has worked to place scans of all available exhibits that he created on the website. This web page will be the electronic "Kugel Room", containing all known references to his work, including those items on the MPHS website.
