KARL E. MUNDT
This First Day Cover honors the USAID Food for Peace Initiative and is signed by the South Dakota Senator
First Day Cover Signed: “Karl E. Mundt / South Dakota” in green ink on a 6½x3½ stamped envelope. This honors the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Food for Peace Initiative. Postmarked Washington, District of Columbia, June 4, 1963. Five cent stamp affixed features the head of a grain of wheat. FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Karl E. Mundt (1900-1974) was a United States Congressman who served in the House from 1938-1948 and the Senate from 1948-1973. In 1923, he was named teacher and principal of Bryant High School. The following year he was promoted to superintendent of all the schools in Bryant, South Dakota. This position, as well as a teaching tenure at Eastern State Normal School (Dakota State University today), gave him the exposure he needed to run for office. Just two years into his position as superintendent, Mundt co-founded the National Forensic League, an organization known nationally today as a debate and speech honor society. In 1969, Mundt had a major stroke while serving as Senator, preventing him from keeping up on his duties and requiring intensive speech and physical therapy. Mundt did not resign despite his incapacitation; instead, his wife ran his office at the Capitol for over three years, a controversial decision to this day. Fine condition.
