ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the use of postage stamp in promoting the National Industrial Recovery Act in 1933, as requested by U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to the U.S. Post Office Department. Roosevelt demanded that ideas and designs for the stamp be presented to him quickly to be issued at once. A design by Rudolph Lambert and William H. Seely, president of Osborne Co., was selected by Roosevelt for the stamp. The stamp was released and thousands of covers were produced.
