Linn's Stamp News notes that noted stamp designer Chris Calle (cS: ChrisCalle) will be the featured speaker at the American Philatelic Society's Tiffany Dinner on Aug. 21 as part of the 2014 StampShow in Hartford, Connecticut.
Perhaps Chris' most well-known stamp is the $2.40 Priority Mail stamp of 1989 depicting Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planting the American flag on the Moon's surface. In 2011 this stamp was the one postage stamp voted to represent the United States in the Smithsonian National Postal Museum's International Collectors Exhibit in the new William H. Gross Stamp Gallery. was only five years ago that Chris joined the ranks of philately as a collector. His main focus is the 1969 First Man on the Moon stamp (Scott C76) designed by his father.

All times are CT (US)
