Stamp of Notoriety
June 19, 2011
This June, botanist Asa Gray becomes the latest Mount Auburn “notable” to be honored on a commemorative postage stamp. Join Helen Lenane and Jim Gorman for this walk to explore the fascinating history and study of stamps, covers and postmarks. In addition to Asa Gray, we’ll discuss other Mount Auburn notables who have shared this same honor including Dorothea Dix, Buckminster Fuller, Julia Ward Howe, and Winslow Homer.
