U.S. #1202 was issued in honor of longtime U.S. congressman Sam Rayburn (1882-1961), who died less than a year before the stamp was issued. Rayburn, of Texas, served as Speaker of the House of Representatives longer than anyone else. He was Speaker from 1940-47, 1949-53, and 1955-61. Rayburn served in Congress for 49 consecutive years. 
 
Rayburn was famous for his integrity, and insisted on paying his expenses with his own money. He was also well-known for his informal meetings held after business hours in the Capitol.  Called the “Board of Education,” the meetings were by personal invitation only, and members would play poker while discussing politics. Rayburn was commonly called, “Mr. Sam,” or “Mr. Democrat.”
