Percy Lavon Julian

The Percy Lavon Julian stamp was issued on Jan. 29, 1993, in Chicago. It was designed by Higgins Bond. In 1927 Julian became the head of the chemistry department at Howard University. The hormones that he helped to produce are used to prevent miscarriages in pregnant women and are used to fight cancer.
