Linus Pauling Stamp Unveiled

March 7th, 2008

Attendees receiving hand stamped postmarks

A follow up from the Linus Pauling Day post from last week. The official Linus Pauling Stamp unveiling was held in the MU Ballroom yesterday. I wasn’t able to attend so I was very interested to see KEZI’s coverage of the event (which was great, by the way…Kudos KEZI!) .

“We are pleased to honor Linus Pauling as one of the top twenty scientists in the world,” said Corvallis Postmaster John Harrington.

After the ceremony, the Postal Service offered a commemorative one-day-only hand-stamped postmark designed specifically for the event.

The new stamp is part of a new series created by the Postal Service honoring American Scientists Gety Cori, Edwin Hubble, John Bardeen, and Linus Pauling. The event was hosted by a combined effort by OSU University Events, Special Collections and Printing and Mailing Services.

A truly great honor for Dr. Pauling and his family!
