Atoms for Peace Stamp

US Postage Stamps: 1955


Atoms for Peace Stamp

The Atoms for Pease stamp was issued on July 28, 1955 in Washington, D.C.   The text “To find the way by which the… Inventiveness of man shall… be… consecrated to his life” was taken from a speech by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to the United Nations in 1953, just eight years after the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The Atoms for Peace program was established to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology by supplying information and equipment to research institutions, schools and hospitals in the United States and worldwide.  The program was also designed to reduce the fear of atomic war and nuclear technology.
