This article lists people who have been featured on stamps of the United States. For this purpose "featured" is not limited to portraits of the person, but includes any identifiable representation of their works. Thus the "Whistler's Mother" stamp of 1934 is considered to feature its painter (see also Artists of stamps of the United States). The date after the name refers to the year when that person first appeared on a stamp of the United States.

The United States Post Office issued its first stamp in 1847, but several cities had previously issued their own provisional stamps.
