The Mount Honored by the U.S. Postal Service

January 10th, 2008

In late April, the 200th anniversary of the founding of Mount St. Mary's University will be celebrated with a stamped postal card issued on the Emmitsburg, MD, campus.

The stamp art features a watercolor painting of "the Terrace" created by award-winning architectural illustrator Frank Costantino of Winthrop, MA. Composed of DuBois, Brute and McCaffrey Halls, the Terrace is one of the central attractions on the university's picturesque campus. Costantino based his artwork on historic photographs and drawings. Constantino worked with art director Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, AZ.
