Haiti: Schweitzer

Haiti issued a set of seven stamps in 1967 in memory of Albert Schweitzer. The stamps feature three different designs with varying colors. The first is a map of Alsace, France and of Gabon; the second is Schweitzer with a hospital named after him in Haiti; the third is a portrait of the doctor with organ pipes in the background. Three stamps (Scott 559-561) from the set were for regular postage; four (Scott C273-C276) were for airmail postage.
