Former CSAC president featured in AP story

Jack Rosenthal, 75, former president of the U.S. Postal Service's Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, was featured in an Associated Press story, Casper Man Puts Stamp on History, which appeared in the Billings [Wyoming] Gazette on Wednesday.

According to the article, "Rosenthal served on the stamp advisory committee from 1985-92, he designed and pushed through three Wyoming stamps: the 15-cent Buffalo Bill Cody stamp in 1988, the Wyoming Statehood Centennial 25-cent stamp in 1990, and the 29-cent Oregon Trail Commemorative stamp of 1993."

"Rosenthal's scrapbooks detail every aspect of the selection process, including several rejected designs, variations of the print style on the stamp, full sheets of the finished stamps, photographs of the issuing ceremony, transcripts from Rosenthal's speeches he made at the ceremonies, letters from congressmen, and envelopes with special cancellations commemorating the first day of issue."

Shown above, Rosenthal and his new book, "Wyoming on Stamps."
