Postage Stamp Honoring the American Lawyer


On August 24, 1953, the U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the American Bar Association. The design features the center section of the frieze panel on the west wall of the Courtroom of the Supreme Court. The panel, carved by Adolph A. Weinman (1870–1952), is an allegorical representation of “Good Versus Evil.” The central female figures are Justice  and Divine Inspiration. Flanking them are representations of Wisdom, to the left, with an owl perched on his shoulder, and Truth, to the right, holding a mirror and a rose.

To learn more about this frieze panel and others in the Courtroom, please see the Architectural Information sheets on the Court’s website.
