OOOOooooo… DELTIOLOGIST – another fun word.

Deltiology … is the study and collection of postcards. Professor Randall Rhoades of Ashland, Ohio, coined a word in 1945 that became the accepted description of the study of picture postcards. It initially took about 20 years for the name to appear in a dictionary.

Postcards are considered “ephemera:”

things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time.”there were papers, letters, old boxes—all sorts of ephemera”
