The history of the world can be seen through postage stamps, and that includes nearly every significant event and individual involved in radio.
Ever since England issued the first postage stamp over 150 years ago, postmaster generals from around the globe have commemorated the great events and people of history in stamps. Those accorded such a distinction have a permanent niche in world history. In fact, stamps have become such a depository of historical data that, if archaeologists from some future civilization excavated a 20th-century stamp collection, they would be able to deduce from it the importance of an individual or an event in our society.
