Description:
1963 3 ¾ x 6 ½ US 5c National Academy of Sciences Centennial stamp cacheted First Day Cover, postmarked Washington, D.C., October 14, 1963 and “First Day of Issue”, signed by 11 1934-1973 recipients of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry: (1934) Harold C. Urey (1894-1981), US chemist, discovered deuterium (heavy hydrogen) 1931,which made heavy water required for nuclear fission and atomic bombs; (1937) Paul Karrer (1889-1971), Swiss organic chemist, co-recipient for investigating constitution of carotenoids, flavins, and vitamins A and B2; (1947) Sir Robert Robinson (1886-1975), British chemist, researched plant dyestuffs (anthocyanins) and alkaloids; (1952) Archer J. P. Martin (1910-2002), British biochemist, co-recipient for development of paper partition chromatography, quick and economical analytical technique permitting extensive advances in chemical, medical, and biological research; (1958, 1980) Frederick Sanger (b. 1918, 4th 2-time recipient), English biochemist, determined structure of the insulin molecule, shared 1980 Prize for determination of base sequences in nucleic acids; (1967) Ronald G. W. Norrish (1897-1978), British chemist, co-recipient for studies of very fast chemical reactions; (1969) Derek H. R. Barton (1919-1998), British chemist, studies revealed that organic molecules have a preferred three-dimensional form from which their chemical properties can be inferred; (1970) Luis F. Leloir (1906-1987), Argentine chemist, discovered sugar nucleotides and their role in biosynthesis of carbohydrates; (1971) Gerhard Herzberg (1904–1999), Canadian physicist, researcher into electronic structure and geometry of molecules, particularly free radicals, which had important implications in astrophysics, biology, chemistry, medicine, and physics; (1972) Christian B. Anfinsen (1916-1995) US biochemist, co-recipient for research clarifying relationship between the molecular structure of proteins and their biological functions; (1973) Ernst Otto Fischer (?), West German chemist, co-recipient for pioneering work on chemistry of the organometallic, so- called “sandwich compounds”.
