An enthusiastic crowd gathered today on the Oregon State University campus for the official Pauling stamp release event. Approximately 8,000 stamps were sold in less than two hours!
Attendees, who included the mayor of Condon, Oregon and a group of students from Linus Pauling Middle School, enjoyed brief talks by Linus Pauling, Jr. (bottom – far right), Tom Hager and Steve Lawson, as well as a video-message from U.S. Congresswoman Darlene Hooley.
