Byrd’s Second Trip to “Little America”
In 1933, Rear Admiral Richard Byrd made plans to return to the U.S. exploration station in Antarctica nicknamed Little America. When he paid a visit to Franklin Roosevelt before leaving, the President reportedly said, “Don’t forget to send me a cover from Little America for my stamp collection.”
 
This led to the President’s recommendation to the Postmaster General for a stamp honoring Byrd’s achievements. It would pay the postage from Little America. The stamp’s design is based on a rough sketch made by FDR.
