George Bernard Shaw - Stamp Collector

According toWikitelic, a new philatelic Facebook page that says it is "A fun place for stamp collectors to share information, ideas, resources as well as show and tells," Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) was a stamp collector.

The site says Shaw was once quoted as saying, "“Words are only postage stamps delivering the object for you to unwrap.”

My Fair Lady was adapted by Lerner and Loewe from George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion.
