May 31, 1958 IGY Postage Stamp, Earth Science and the artist's
idea. Like many nations participating in the IGY, the United States issued a
postage stamp commemorating this scientific undertaking. The following
information is quoted from the Post Office Department’s press release announcing
the issuance of the stamp: “The 3-cent International Geophysical Year
commemorative postage stamp to be placed on First-Day sale on May 31, 1958 in
Chicago is based on a photograph of the sun and depicts an area of intense solar
activity such as occurs periodically and is among the phenomena being studied
during the 18-month period of the International Geophysical Year. “The United
States program in the International Geophysical Year is under the direction of
the National Academy of Sciences. “Superimposed above the solar disc and the
fiery solar prominences emanating from it is a segment of Michaelangelo’s [sic]
famous fresco ‘The Creation of Adam.’ “Ervine Metzl, the designer of the stamp,
explained that ‘In the small confines of a postage stamp we have endeavored to
picture a man’s wonder at the unknown together with his determination to
understand it and his need for spiritual inspiration to further his knowledge.’
“Across the top of the stamp is the wording ‘International Geophysical Year
1957-1958,’ arranged in two lines, and across the bottom is ‘U.S. Postage 3c.’
All the lettering is in white-face Gothic. “The stamp will be printed on the
Giori rotary sheet-fed press, in two colors, black and orange, and perforated on
a L-type machine. The stamp will be 0.84 by 1.44 inches in dimension, arranged
horizontally, and issued in sheets of 50 with an initial printing of 120,000,000
