    YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO USE IMAGES FROM ARAGO'S DATABASE! JIM O'DONNEL EMAILED ME AND GAVE PERMISSION! GO TO WORK WADE AND JOSH DOWNLOADING IMAGES FOR B-ROLL AND VOICE OVER WORK! : )
    Here's the information from Arago's website on use:
    The online database of the National Postal Museum, Arago�, was named in honor of the French physicist, astronomer and politician, Fran�ois Arago (1786-1853). A friend of James Smithson (benefactor of the Smithsonian Institution), Arago believed that science and available technologies should be used to advance public knowledge and improve everyday life. Renowned as a scientist, he was also a humanitarian who used his political roles to introduce social reforms � the abolition of slavery, universal manhood suffrage, and the education of the lower classes � not only in France but also in its colonial possessions.
    Please send suggestions or comments regarding the Arago website to arago@si.edu.
