Description 

Issued in 1976, this stamp honors Clara Maass who was an American nurse that volunteered for experiments to control yellow fever and malaria in Cuba. Bitten by the stegmyia mosquito, she contracted a slight case of yellow fever, but recovered. Two months later, she volunteered again. This time she died within ten days. Maass was the only woman and also the only American to die during these experiments.
