The Margaret Mead 1998 U.S. Postage Stamp in the Celebrate the Century Collection for the 1920s

In 1998 the United States Postal Service issued a stamp commemorating Margaret Mead as part of the Celebrate the Century series. The post office in Hancock, New Hampshire, where Mead often visited her daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson, presented a portrait based on the stamp to Dr. Bateson (right) and Sevanne Martin Kassarjian (center), Mead's granddaughter, in a special ceremony in July 1999.
