1949 3¢ Edgar Allen Poe

U.S. #986 was issued to honor Edgar Allen Poe on the 100th anniversary of his death. Poe was orphaned as an infant in Boston, and was taken in by a family in Richmond, Virginia, where he grew up. Richmond hosts the Poe Museum, and was the site of the First Day of Issue for this stamp. Poe was nearly included in the “Famous Americans” stamps in 1940. This 1949 stamp is designed in a similar manner to stamps from that series.
 
Edgar Allen Poe
Author and Poet
 Poet, short-story writer, and critic, Edgar Allen Poe (1809-49) is one of America’s most famous literary figures. He has been considered one of the forerunners of the American Romantic Movement and has been credited with virtually inventing the modern detective story. His first tale of this kind was the short story The Murders in the Rue Morgue, written in 1841. His best-known poem, The Raven, was published in January 1845 and was met with instant success.
