Telling the Story of a Nation


32-cent Kindred Spirits stamp
This stamp featuring "Kindred Spirits" by Asher B. Durand was released to the public August 27, 1998.

Created by Alexander T. Haimann, Collections Specialist, and Clifford R. Haimann, Research Intern, National Postal Museum.

We would like to dedicate this virtual exhibition to our parents, Mark and Amy Haimann. If we had not inherited our passion for art and stamps from them, this project would have taken a very different form.

We extend our thanks to Christine Mereand, Research Coordinator, for her careful assistance in reviewing and editing the text of this virtual exhibition. We would also like to thank our fellow team members MJ Meredith and Marty Emery for their support throughout our work on this project.

This virtual exhibition would not have been complete without George Amick's invaluable resource, the Linn's U.S. Stamp Yearbooks.
