When Peter Schaub served as AAPA president in 2013-17, he inherited an organization at a low point. His persistent efforts and leadership brought the organization through the tough times, and when his second term ended the AAPA was much stronger.
In recognition of his efforts, The Fossils (the historians of amateur journalism) have named Peter the 2019 winner of the Russell L. Paxton Award for Service to Amateur Journalism.
The award was made September 4 at a picnic in Portland, Oregon, attended by AAPA members Laurie Kitzke, Heather Lane, L. W. “Jiyani” Lawson, and Ivan Snyder.

Amateur journalism is a unique activity. Amateur journalists publish journals on paper & online & come from many perspectives: from deluxe letterpress printed journals, to Xeroxed newsletters, to artistically designed cards and ephemera. We embrace the spirit of being amateurs – loving what we do for pure joy and not financial gain – while creating top quality journals, zines, and homemade publications.
