On June 9 the third assistant postmaster general, Mr. Joseph Lawler, will present to the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association the stamp issued by the Post Office Department of the United States commemorating the work of the physician; it is issued as a part of the celebration of the birth of the American Medical Association one hundred years ago.
The stamp is a three cent stamp which reproduces the painting "The Doctor" by Sir Samuel Luke Fildes, R.A. The original study for this painting hangs in the Guthrie Clinic of the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa. It was presented to the hospital by Mr. Allan P. Kirby. Through the kindness of the hospital this original study will be exhibited in the auditorium at the Centennial Celebration.
The large painting called "The Doctor" which hangs in the Tate Gallery in London was painted from this original study.
