Help get stamps for Mother Jones and Eugene Debs

The West Virginia Labor History Association board urges you to support a nationwide campaign petitioning the U.S. Postal Service to create commemorate stamps in honor of two American labor leaders, Mother Jones and Eugene Debs.

The board joins this campaign in collaboration with Sanford Berman, an activist librarian who successfully petitioned the Library of Congress to create West Virginia-related subject headings including “mountaintop removal mining,” “West Virginia Mine Wars, 1897-1921” and “The Battle of Blair Mountain, 1921.”

Please send a letter or postcard requesting that stamps be printed in honor of Mother Jones and Eugene Debs to:

Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee Stamp Development U.S. Postal Service 1735 North Lynn St. Rm. 5013 Arlington, VA 22209-6432

Please send a copy of your communication to: Sanford Berman 4400 Morningside Road Edina, MN 55416
