Research Facts
Dr. Virginia Apgar aspired to be a surgeon, then moved into the then relatively new field of anesthesiology, conducting research on the effects of obstetric anesthesia on newborn babies.
The first postal stamp website shows that it was published in the U.S.A in 1994. The second website shows that it was made in Dallas, Texas, and that it was printed by The United States Postal Service.
