Profile Information

Milwaukee, WI
About Me:
I"m a former musician and have been collecting National Geographica for many, many years. I've collected everything; mags, maps, special issue books ( all 1st editions), coffee table books, games, indexes ( both books and 6 month inserts), NGS Traveler, NGS Research, childrens books - Books for Young Explorers, Books for World Explorers, World Magazine, and have some fo the old School Bulletins, Pop Up Books, and many other NGS items. You name it, I might have it.

As I'm getting older it's time to start selling my collection and hopefully those younger than I will pick up where I've left off. If interested, please email me at
Favorite National Geographic publication:
I prefer the older NGS mags up through the 70's. In the 80's I feel that the NGS started to take too much of a political turn and took away a lot of the mistique that made the NGS enjoyable for me.
Favorite travel destination:
Any where in the USA, Washington DC, Mount Rushmore, etc.

Hi Robert,

An idea: it would be really helpful/informative if you could post a few photos of what you have on this site. Like, samples of the indexes, books, any LP's. recordings from issues, vintage books, and somthing to represnt the issues and whatnot.
