William J. Uihlein Postage Stamp Collection

The Uihlein Stamp collection was donated in 1928 by William J. Uihlein, an avid stamp collector who amassed 22 albums comprising 40,000 stamps from around the world. Many of the stamps in this collection are pre-1900 and quite rare. Uihlein volunteered at the Museum with his collection until his death in 1932. The Uihlein stamp collection was continued in his honor, including this first day cover, a special issue to honor the finding, discovery, and display at the Milwaukee Public Museum of the most complete Torosaur fossil found.
