President Ronald Reagan
40th President of the United States 1981-1989
Ronald Reagan charmed America with his quick wit and easy-going personality. After a career as a Hollywood movie actor, he became governor of California before storming into the White House in 1981.
Reagan revolutionized the way government was run. He cut spending and reduced the size of government while also inspiring an economic boom and helping the collapse of communism in the former Soviet Union. Reagan died in 2004 at the age of 93.
The 37¢ Ronald Reagan stamp was issued on February 9, 2005, to honor one of America’s most popular and beloved Presidents.
