    Seeking Douglas MacArthur's request for postage stamp to honor West Point

    Martin Joyce Newbie

      On June 17, 1935, Army Chief of Staff Douglas MacArthur directed Colonel Roger G. Alexander (USMA 1907), Professor and head of West Point's  Department of Drawing, to prepare designs for a three-cent commemorative stamp featuring West Point. This predated the series of Army-Navy stamps released in 1936-37. West Point produced about a dozen designs in response to MacArthur's request.  I'm trying to find a copy of MacArthur's request to Colonel Alexander (or to West Point Superintendent William Connor) for this effort.  Thanks for any help you can offer.
