National Postal Museum Launches the Arago Featured Collection "Women on Stamps Parts III and IV"
Harriet Quimby.
WASHINGTON, DC.- The Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum presents parts three and four of its four-part online exhibit series “Women on Stamps” in celebration of Women’s History Month.

Many women have left their “stamp” on history. Beginning with the first image of women on a stamp in 1893, the United States has issued hundreds of postage stamps honoring the accomplishments and achievements of women in America.

“Women on Stamps: Part III” focuses on women who have made significant contributions to the arts and literature. The first part of the online exhibit highlights the accomplishments of female artists, while the second part discusses women in literature. From journalists such as Ida Tarbell to novelists such as Edith Wharton, these women not only made great contributions to American literature, they also expanded opportunities for future women authors.

“Women on Stamps: Part IV” highlights contributions to the performing arts. The first section discusses prominent female singers. Performing music ranging from gospel to popular hits, these women have helped shape the musical traditions of America. The second section highlights women who have contributed to the fields of theater and dance. Whether Broadway dancers or iconic movie actresses, they have had a tremendous influence on the stage and screen.
