Arago: 3-cent Eliot

3-cent Eliot

Charles W. Eliot (1834-1926) appears on the 3-cent Famous American Educators stamp, issued March 28, 1940. Following in-depth study of European educational systems, Eliot published his ideas for realigning American education with the demands of the industrial age. Eliot served as president of Harvard from 1869 to 1909 and is credited with elevating the University to the uppermost level of education in America.
