George in the 1930s

The George W. Brett Papers and Documents Collection was bequeathed to Smithsonian National Postal Museum (NPM). Upon his death, this collection was separated from both his stamp collections and his personal library which were sold in a series of auctions partially benefiting the United States Stamp society and the NPM. This Collection was packed into boxes at his home in Spirit Lake, Iowa and shipped to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum in Washington, D.C. between 2007 and 2009. There the content of the boxes was reorganized into a set of new boxes.
