Long (1815-1878) – one of the first doctors to use ether as an anesthetic Luther Burbank (1849-1926) – used cross pollination to create new plants, such as the Burbank potato, primus berry and Shasta daisy Walter Reed (1851-1902) – discovered yellow fever is transmitted through mosquitoes, and found new ways to control the bugs and the spread of the disease Jane Addams (1860-1935) – research helped introduce first eight-hour law for women workers, child labor laws and housing and juvenile court reforms 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 Scientists set.
