Paul Lawrence Dunbar (1554) – American writer and poet, Dunbar was the son of an escaped slave. His writing greatly contributed to a greater understanding of African American heritage.
D.W. Griffith (#1555) – Griffith was a pioneer of the silver screen. He refined movie techniques, like close-ups and fade-outs, and discovered the talents of stars such as Lillian Gish and Mary Pickford.
Mariner 10 (#1557) – Mariner 10 swung within 3,600 miles of Venus in 1974. Afterward, it made the first near examination ever of Mercury, the smallest planet.
Lexington and Concord (# 1563) – The Battles of Lexington and Concord are traditionally remembered as the first events of the Revolutionary War, and the site of the “shot heard ‘round the world.”
Apollo-Soyuz (#1569-70)– Apollo-Soyuz was the first mission undertaken by Russian and American astronauts in a joint, peaceful quest into outer space. Issued as an attached pair, these stamps illustrate the main objective of the mission, which was a successful docking in space.
U.S. Postal Service Bicentennial (#1572-75)– This block of four stamps displays the different modes of transportation used for conveying mail over the years by road, rail, air, and space.
Christmas (#1579)– This Christmas issue shows a detail of “The Madonna and Child,” painted by Italian artist Domenico di Tommaso Ghirlandaio. Because postage rates for late 1975 were uncertain, both Christmas stamps were issued with no denomination; they were the first non-denominated U.S. stamps.
