Park Rapids area man to have photo featured on postal stamp
Richard Hamilton Smith's life path hung a looie in 1971 when his college roommate couldn't come up with the rent.
The pre-med student took his roommate's camera in trade for the rent money. A career was born the minute he picked up the gear.
Medicine didn't challenge Smith's artistic side, he admitted. Photography did.
In October the U.S. Postal Service will unveil the second Smith photograph to appear on a stamp.
