Mae West

August 17, 1893 – Birthdate of Mae West, American actress, singer, and screenwriter (d. 1980)

Sadly, the U.S. Postal Service has not yet issued a stamp commemorating this brilliant performing artist.  The Republic of Congo, however, seems to be more progressive – or perhaps more business savvy (think of all the stamp collectors wanting to add this item to their collection).
