This set of four commemorates pioneering American choreographers.
 
Martha Graham (1894-1991), principal founder of American modern dance, created a style of dance based on the interplay of tension and relaxation. The result was choreography and movement that expressed intense emotion.
 
Alvin Ailey (1931-1989) was one of the leading choreographers of his era. He presented the beauty and complexity of American black culture to a wide audience, blending ballet and modern dance with jazz, blues, and gospel.
 
In her works, Agnes de Mille (1905-93) blended the classical forms of ballet, the expressive qualities of modern dance, and the traditions of American folk dancing. The result transformed musical comedy into a new American art form with broad public appeal.
 
Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, George Balanchine (1904-83) left Russia in 1924 to tour Western Europe with the Soviet State Dancers; he did not return. Balanchine moved to New York and established the School of American Ballet. “Mr. B,” as the ballet world knew him, created a particularly American style of classical ballet and made the New York City Ballet into one of the finest dance companies in the world.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    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.
