Horace Man (1796-1859) – helped establish the American elementary school system
Mark Hopkins (1802-1887) – one of the first teachers to encourage students to question what they’re taught
Charles William Elliot (1834-1926) – Harvard’s longest-serving president; helped establish it as one of nation’s finest universities
Frances Elizabeth Willard (1839-1898) – helped establish Northwestern University as one of the top schools for women

In 1934, after stamp-collecting President Franklin Roosevelt’s first year in office, the public began asking that certain people be honored on stamps. The result was the Famous Americans set – a direct link to F.D.R.’s presidency. F.D.R. took charge, choosing many of the honorees, approving sketches and selecting denominations for some stamps! With this convenient offer you can get all five stamps in the American Educators set.
All of the American Educators stamps picture the Lamp of Knowledge – a symbol for teachers. Get one step closer to completing your Famous Americans Series – order the American Educators set today.
