To the Editor:—
As a collector of postage stamps related to medical topics I was pleased to see 2 recent additions to The Journal—medical stamps appearing above the Foreign Mail section and the 2 recent biographical sketches by J. A. Mirt.I have checked many sources, including the Library of Congress, but I am unable to identify the reference in the July 8 issue (JAMA177:26) to "Mirt, J. A.: 'Medical Pathfinders on Postage Stamps.' " Could you please tell me where this appears?On the Foreign Mail page, do you think it would be of interest to identify the persons or places depicted by the stamps?
