Five journalists feature on a new range of stamps issued by the US Postal Service. The stamps were announce last year and have just appeared. The journalists featured are:
RubÃ©n Salazar, a TV and Los Angeles Times reporter killed when covering a 1970 war protest in East Los Angeles.
Martha Gellhorn, who covered the Spanish civil war in the 1930s and, at the age of 81, the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1989. She was married to Ernest Hemingway from 1940 to 1945. She died in 1998.
George Polk, a CBS News correspondent who was killed in the Greek civil war in 1948. His death, not a battle casualty but an execution-style shot to the head, remains unsolved.
John Hersey, a World War II correspondent for Time, Life and the New Yorker magazines. He won a 1945 Pulitzer Prize for the novel “A Bell for Adano.” He died in 1993.
Eric Sevareid, CBS News correspondent, one of “Murrow’s Boys” in the early days of CBS News. He was first to report France’s 1940 surrender to Nazi Germany. He died in 1992. link
