Jose Carranza (1859-1920) was Mexico's 37th president. This 1959 issue of Mexico commemorates his birth centenary.

From Wikipedia, Jose Venustiano Carranza was one of the main leaders of the Mexican Revolution, whose victorious northern revolutionary Constitutionalist Army defeated the counter-revolutionary regime of Victoriano Huerta and then defeated fellow revolutionaries after Huerta's ouster...He was elected president, serving from 1917 to 1920."

Here is Charles Evans Hughes, tenth Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and a former Governor of New York State. This US stamp was issued in 1962, centennial of his birth. Scott 1195.
I always liked this stamp which stood out among the issues of its day for the off-white paper and the slightly luminous quality of the figure.

Here is Walt Disney (1901-1966) with his not-too-exuberant mustache on a 1968 issue, Sc. 1355. Animation pioneer, cartoonist, film producer and TV and amusement park entrepreneur. His private behavior was different from his public persona, for instance he drank and smoked - unfiltered cigarettes - in private. The cigs got him suddenly at age 65.

Here's a mustachioed military man, "Black Jack" Pershing (1860-1948) on a 1961 US issue, Scott 1214.

Early in his career as a lieutenant in the 1890s he commanded a regiment of "Buffalo Soldiers" who were rounding up Cree in Montana and deporting them to Canada. This earned him his nickname. He also served in the Spanish American War, and in quelling the "Phillipine Insurrection."

But Pershing is most famous for commanding the American Expeditionary Forces in France during World War I. He came in for some criticism for his embrace of frontal assaults. My grandfather, who served in the AEF, hated him for that, and for keeping his division standing all day in the rain in a muddy field awaiting his dress inspection after the armistice. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his memoirs published in 1932.

Here is another military man with a mustache -- Walter Reed (1851-1902).

He was evidently a precocious fellow, graduated with his MD from University of Virginia at age 18! Was in civilian medical practice for a time, but then went into the army medical corps. Stationed in Washington DC he also taught at George Washington University and conducted pioneering epidemiological work on yellow fever and typhoid. For proving the vector of yellow fever was the mosquito he became known as the one who conquered that awful disease, although Reed himself gave credit to and cited the Cuban physician Carlos Finlay (who had a truly great mustache).

Reed died from a ruptured appendix. Walter Reed General Hospital and other medical institutions were named in his honor. I might mention that Pershing, above, died at Walter Reed.

The stamp is part of the 1940 Famous Americans series. Scott 877.

This October 7, 2010 stamp (Mi. #2825) of Germany commemorates the centenary of the Friedrich Loeffler Institute. The National Institute of Animal Health for Germany was renamed in 1952 after German bacteriologist Friedrich Loeffler (1852-1915).

From Wikipedia, "Among his discoveries was the organism causing diphtheria and the cause of foot-and-mouth disease. His description of the diphtheria bacillus was the originating cause of the antitoxin treatment."

Here is George Washington Carver (early 1860s – 1943). Born into slavery in Missouri, he was the first black student (and later faculty member) at what is now Iowa State, and he went on to become the most famous African-American scientist, celebrated for his work on the peanut, crop rotation, etc., much of it accomplished when on the faculty at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.

The 1948 mono-color stamp barely shows his mustache (Sc. 953). Perhaps the post office got a sweet deal on all that bright red violet ink, as they used it for many similar stamps in the 40s treating American notables. The 1998 full-color stamp does his 'stache more justice (Sc. 3183c).

On April 1, 1930 Greece issued a set of 18 stamps to commemorate the centenary of their war of independence from the Ottoman Empire. Many of these stamps depict mustachioed patriots. This 1.50 drachma, Perkin, Bacon & Co. printing (Sc #347) shows Georgios Karaiskakis (1780-1827).

From brittanica.com website, "Georgios Karaiskakis, a klepht, or brigand chief, who played an important role in the Greek War of Independence, is remembered both for his treachery and for his reckless courage."
