Research Facts
The first website shows that the stamp was created by Ashton-Potter Limited in 1985.
It also shows that the stamp features Louis Hebert, who was a prominent figure in the European settlement of Canada. He was the first French apothecary in the New World, the first magistrate of Quebec, and one of the first colonists of New France. Hébert is commemorated on a stamp issued to mark the 45th International Congress of Pharmaceutical Sciences and of the International Pharmaceutical Federation, to be held from 2 to 6 September 1985 in Montreal. Canadian pharmacists consider Louis Hébert the father of their profession.
The second website shows that before moving to New York, Ashton-Potter Ltd. was located in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
