Ron Robinson interviewed by Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Calling him, "Equal parts philatelist and bon vivant," Brazzel says Robinson has post-office booth from 1935 in his Little Rock condominium.
According to Brazzel, "Robinson briefly considered removing the cage and retrofitting the counter as a cocktail bar, but ultimately couldn’t bear to dismantle any part of U.S. Postal Service history."
As regards what he and the committee looks for in a stamp subject, he is quoted as saying, "We look for stamps that represent American achievement. And we want it on a national, not regional, basis. We do not commemorate disaster. We have received some criticism for that, but so be it. For instance, there was not a stamp this year on the 20th anniversary of the shuttle explosion."
