In 1986 James Lutschg MD, Baton Rouge, Louisiana wrote to the United States Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee urging that an anti-smoking postage stamp be issued on the 25th anniversary in 1989 of the Surgeon General’s first report on smoking and health, published by Luther Terry, MD on January 11, 1964. Dr. Lutschg was informed that such commemorative stamps are only considered at 50-year anniversary intervals. In 2000, Dr. Lutschg revived his campaign with a poster at the 11th World Conference on Tobacco or Health which was co-sponsored by the American Medical Association.
