Aside from being the first lady to arguably the most iconic president in modern history, Nancy Reagan is also famous for her “Just Say No” campaign, which alerted kids in the 1980s to the dangers of drugs. Before political life, she starred in 11 films, appearing opposite her future husband in her last movie. She remained dedicated to both the Just Say No cause, as well as her husband’s memory, until she passed away in 2016.
First Lady Reagan isn’t the only one with her title to make an appearance on a postage stamp. Martha Washington started the trend in 1902, a century after she passed, on a stamp for just a cent and a half. Dolly Madison, Abigail Adams, Lady Bird Johnson, and Eleanor Roosevelt also graced the US Postal Service’s official lineup.
