Above: World Columbian Exposition Stamp commemorating the Columbia Exposition of 1893.
"Among monuments making the progress of civilization throughout the ages, the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 will ever stand conspicuous. Gathered here are the forces which move humanity and make history, the ever-shifting powers that fit new thoughts to new conditions, and shape the destinies of mankind. .. Obviously, a gathering like this of man and things from every quarter, each country contributing of its best, must promote intellectual activity and physical energy, and accelerate progress in all its departments. .. the success of this exposition, its financial success, its success as an artistic and spectacular display, and as a display of industrial products and mechanical inventions quickly led to others, each surpassing its predecessor in magnitude, and for the most part in the character of its exhibits"
