The hunting license is issued to L.W. Patton, Amarillo TX on November 17th, 1941. The unused stamp is Ruddy Ducks by Edwin R. Kalmbach July 1, 1941. Kalmbach was one of the chief architects of the federal migratory bird stamp program back in the 1930s. In 1941, his drawing of a family of Ruddy ducks was selected for the artwork to be featured on the 8th federal waterfowl stamp. The following unattributed quote has been repeated in many publications and can be found throughout the internet:
“Dr. Kalmbach chose the ruddy ducks for his duck stamp because it is the only North American specie in which the drake commonly stays with the female and ducklings during their downy young period. He featured the brood because it represents the purpose for which duck stamp funds are used: the the perpetuation and enhancement of the species”.
