Christmas Seals, 1937

Christmas Seal design, 1937.

Richard Young, a Bloomington High School student, is seen here showing an enlarged reproduction of his 1937 Christmas Seal design. That holiday season the McLean County Tuberculosis Association mailed off more than 10,000 letters with Christmas Seals in the hopes of raising $3,700 to fight the deadly scourge.
