U.S. #1155 was issued in conjunction with the Eighth World Congress of the International Society for the Welfare of Cripples. The President’s Committee on Employment of the Physically Handicapped sponsored the Congress. The stamp was released to promote the hiring of the handicapped, and shows a man in a wheelchair using a drill.
The Congress was held in New York City, opening on the same day the stamp was issued. Over 3,000 people attended, including doctors, nurses, therapists, and voluntary workers.
