Postage stamps

Postage Stamps have honored several Brown alumni. Horace Mann 1819 was honored in Famous American Issues featuring educators in 1940. The 4-cent stamp honoring Charles Evans Hughes 1881, which featured a likeness from a photograph by Harris and Ewing, was issued in 1962, the centennial of his birth. Lillian Gilbreth ’15 Ph.D., who with her husband pioneered in time-motion studies in industry and was made famous by the book, Cheaper by the Dozen, written by two of her children, was chosen to be one of Great American Series in 1984.
