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.
