Abstract The stamp issuance ceremony held in Miami at the Biltmore Hotel helped kick off National Hispanic Heritage Month. The Padre [Félix Varela] stamp is available at Miami-area post offices, and went on sale at post offices nationwide on September 16. Before coming to the U.S., Varela, who was born in 1788, was named Professor of Philosophy of the Seminary of San Carlos in Havana, Cuba, where he quickly distinguished himself as a great educator. During his professional career, Varela introduced numerous innovations in teaching and defending the principle – then considered strange – of giving women the same education as men.
