Biographical/Historical Note

The 22-cent commemorative stamp marking the 150th anniversary of Arkansas statehood was issued January 3, 1986, in Little Rock, the state capital. The stamp, issued in sheets of fifty, went on sale at post offices nationally the next business day. The design features a partial view of Arkansas' Old State House. Trees frame the structure's columned entrance on both sides and shade the sloping lawn in the foreground. The stamps were designed by Roger Carlisle of Jonesboro, Arkansas.
