Arther Ferrill,

I am only a fringe philatelist, so someone else can probably answer
your question better, but in case no one else responds....

Subjects for American commemorative stamps are approved by a panel
appointed (I think) by the Postmaster General. I don't think that,
as a matter of course, the president has a say in what is or is not
approved. But I'm sure that if he wanted to he could.

If you don't get a more informed answer I would suggest that you
send your question to "Linn's Weekly Stamp News" the authoritative
stamp publication. Someone on the staff or among the readership will
certainly know the answer.

Brians: today the LA Times Calendary had a longish essay by its art
critic,Knight, on Mapplethorpe/Warhol/Pollock/and his teacher Benton.
6/3/90. If the NY Times or LA times publish my op ed essay on the
controversy, I will upload it. Meanwhile, it is on a disk whose
directory was smashed today, ten years' of essay on it. Have to get it
rebuilt somehow by an expert at the U this week. Kessler
