Dr George Harrod was a physician practicing in Conway, Arkansas. He was also a member of the Faulkner County Historical Association for many years.
He spent quite a bit of time, over many years, drawing and painting original works of art on envelopes and cards. A large portion were dedicated to interesting place names across the United States.
He would send each envelope to the post office in the selected town name, and ask via a note, for the postal employee to hand cancel the stamp, and send it back to Dr Harrod. He filed them in a series of binders. After his passing in 1982, part of his collection was distributed to some Postal Cover collectors in the local area.
In time, I acquired a portion of the collection from one of those collectors.
Dr Harrod was a very well respected self-taught artist that received letters from many postmasters complimenting his work. These are one-of-a-kind original works of art.
