"Stamp: The Doctor"
By Martin Stabler
This photograph is of a stamp issued in 1947 in honor of the
doctors of America. The image is a reproduction of the
painting "The Doctor" by Sir Luke Fildes. The stamp was first
placed on sale in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on June 9, 1947.
Mr Stabler was a stamp collector as a child and has used this
photograph to create notecards when sending a thank you
to a physician. Mr Stabler is a consultant in the Quality and
Informatics Department at Group Health Cooperative.
