To mark the 50th anniversary of 4-H, a commemorative 3 cent stamp was produced and first offered for sale on January 15, 1952 in Springfield, Ohio. On initial order of 110 million of the stamps were authorized.
It was in Springfield, Ohio that school superintendent A. B. Graham organized one of the first 4-H clubs. At the Springfield ceremony in 1952, Graham was in attendance, along with 14 of the original club members.
The complete history of the official 4-H stamp can now be found on the history preservation website at 4-HHistoryPreservation.com in the National 4-H History section.
