Stamptuary Hall: Henry Clay


Henry Clay’s prominent career in Congress has been honored in many ways: stamps, including one whose First Day of Issue ceremony was held in the Old Senate Chamber where Clay argued for the preservation of the union in the buildup to the Civil War; a statue, given by the state of Kentucky, that currently stands in Statuary Hall; and a tribute that included being the first to lie in state in the Capitol.

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
