    Of all John F. Kennedy's monumental achievements, of the honor he received for his book, "Profiles in Courage", stands out as one of the most distinguished points of his life. Written in 1955 while he was convalescing from a back operation, "Profiles in Courage" featured a study of courageous United States Senators. It portrayed such leaders as Daniel Webster, Sam Houston, and Robert Taft, who risked their political careers for what they believe was right. As Kennedy said in the book's first chapter, they were "men whose abiding loyalty in their nation triumphed over all personal and political considerations."

    "Profiles in Courage" was published in early 1956 and immediately became a best-seller. Reviewers praised the book, and Kennedy received many speaking invitations. His greatest reward, however, came on May 6, 1957, when "Profiles in Courage" won the coveted Pulitzer Prize in Biography. Established by the famous newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer, the Pulitzer prizes are given each year for outstanding journalism, literature, drama, and musical composition.

    The experience helped Kennedy gain the national recognition he needed for his run for the presidency and shaped his thinking about government. The New York Times reported that "in the process of writing about the great and brave men of American politics, Mr. Kennedy acquired a stature and fiber of political philosophy that he had not had before."

    The historic mint stamp on this Panel features Joseph Pulitzer, the journalists and publisher who established the Pulitzer prizes. It was issued in 1947 to honor the 100th anniversary of Joseph Pulitzer's birth. This Panel is postmarked May 6, the exact anniversary of the day John F. Kennedy was awarded the Pulitzer prize.
