About mcbuchanan...

I work as a archivist and records manager for a university. My academic background is in history and library science, but I'm also interested in biology and genetics.

Born in Treaty 2 territory, raised in Treaty 1 territory and the traditional homeland of the Metis Nation, lived in Treaty 6 (1796), the Ratified Indian Treaty 96 (Quapaw/O-ga-xpa), and the traditional and ancestral territory of the Chitimacha Indian Tribe, among others, and am currently living in Treaty 5 territory.

I prefer any cards except ad-cards.

If you're from the UK, I would LOVE the Royal Mail Commemorate, Respect Remember stamps that are coming out in May, (

I like historic areas and monuments and cool nature shots.

I'm very interested in WW2 and WW1, so cards of military monuments, etc. would be great! I also love watching Star Trek (especially DS9 and Enterprise), M*A*S*H, West Wing, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Stargate (especially Atlantis), and WW2 movies.

I enjoy reading, especially military history and some science fiction/fantasy--Anne McCaffrey, Harry Turtledove, G.R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan and J.R.R. Tolkien are among my favourites. I also enjoy cross-stitching and Toastmasters.

I also like animals, especially baby ones. I had a big black cat at home, rescued from a shelter. Unfortunately he was put to sleep on March 29, 2018. I'm a huge fan of animal shelters/rescues.

I've visited the United States, France and Belgium. I lived in the US for 6 years, in Arkansas and Louisiana. I'd love to travel more, but until I win the lottery I'll have to do it through postcards!

I'm sorry, but I don't register cards that I haven't gotten..

I have horrendous handwriting. I do try to make all my cards legible, but I don't always succeed. I've tried and tried to improve it. Maybe I should have been a doctor instead?

After hearing from people seems that the stereotype of doctors having bad handwriting is universal! I wonder where it got started?
