US Presidential Libraries Issue

January 24th, 2005

The U.S. Postal Service will celebrate Presidential Libraries with a commemorative postage stamp to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Presidential Libraries Act of 1955. The Aug. 4 First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremonies will take place at all of the nation's 12 Presidential Libraries and Museums.

The stamp, designed by Howard E. Paine, bears an image of the Presidential seal reproduced in gold against a creme colored background. The type produced in hand calligraphy by Julian Waters, reads: "Presidential Libraries Fifty Years 37 USA."
