The 1¢ Trans-Mississippi Exposition stamp pictures Father Jacques Marquette preaching to a group of Native Americans. The design is based on a William Lamprecht painting owned by Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Marquette (1637-1675) was a French Jesuit missionary and the founder of Michigan’s first European settlement, Sault Ste. Marie. In 1673, Marquette and Louis Jolliet were the first explorers to map the northern portion of the Mississippi River.
The stamp features the same border as the rest of the values. Unlike the 1893 Columbian series, the Trans-Mississippi Exposition commemoratives didn’t include the name or dates of the event. Instead, each stamp features a caption with the name of the photograph or painting upon which its design is based.
