The Rhodesian Study Circle was formed in 1948 following advertisements in the philatelic press in England and South Africa by Wilfrid Nodder, inviting "collectors of the stamps of Southern and Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland" to join in forming a study circle. The aims were to encourage interest in the stamp issues, circulate information about varieties, flaws and postmarks and to write a handbook.
