Born in Russia, Ayn Rand (1905-1982) experienced both the Kerensky and Bolshevik revolutions. During her years there, she witnessed the increase in Communist control and disintegration of personal freedoms. After studying philosophy and screen writing in Russia, Rand obtained permission to leave the country in 1925. She arrived in the United States the next year.
 
On Rand’s second day in Hollywood, movie producer Cecil B. DeMille offered her a ride to the back lot of his studio and gave her a job as an extra. It was there that she met actor Frank O’Connor, whom she married in 1929.
 
Ayn Rand’s two best-known novels present a moral and political philosophy based on individualism and self-interest. In The Fountainhead (1943), an architect destroys a housing project because his design was changed without his knowledge or consent. In Atlas Shrugged (1957), a strike by the men of the mind proves society can’t survive without creative genius. Both books are still in print, with combined sales over 10 million.
 
Ayn Rand was also a stamp collector, with particular interest in issues from the Ryukyu Islands and Iceland. In an article she wrote for the Minkus Stamp Journal in 1971, Rand noted that the 1898 $1 Western Cattle in Storm stamp was among her favorites.

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
