The United States Postal Service unveiled its new Paul Newman forever stamp on Friday, Sept. 18, during a ceremony held in the Playhouse Square District in Newman's native Cleveland.
“Paul Newman left an indelible mark on American film and American culture. He loved life. He loved the arts. And, perhaps most importantly, he loved to help others,” said Joshua Colin, vice president for eastern area operations for the Postal Service. “Through this stamp, Paul Newman will forever be remembered as a great actor, writer, producer and director who advanced philanthropic endeavors, funded charitable causes and made the world a better place.”
On hand with Colin during the cermony were Clea Newman Soderlund, senior director of special initiatives, SeriousFun Children’s Network and Paul Newman’s daughter; Robert Forrester, president and CEO, Newman’s Own Foundation; Mimi Dane, president and CEO, Flying Horse Farms; Eryn Powell, freshman, Kenyon College and Flying Horse Farms camper; W.
