The Envelope Must be REALLY Big

May 11 is the birthday of the late Richard Feynman, physicist extraordinaire, and in his honor on that date the US Post Office issued the stamp pictured here. The scene is the post office in Far Rockaway in the borough of Queens, New York, where Feynman grew up, and surrounding the humungous stamp are (l to r), Ralph Leighton, who co-authored “Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman” and various other books with Feynman, Brian Schwartz of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, who worked with Leighton to get the stamp approved, and Feynman’s sister, physicist Joan Feynman.
