Women's College Quiz: The First Woman to Design a US Postage Stamp is a Graduate of Which College?

Answer: In 1934, Esther Richards, a 1921 graduate of Moore College of Art & Design, with a degree in Illustration, designed a US Postage Stamp that was first issued on October 8, 1934. The 10-cent stamp was one in a series of stamps celebrating our National Parks and displayed a view of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Interesting to note, the stamp had the highest value in the series and also was the last stamp of the series with 18,874,300 stamps issued.
