1960 UNESCO Slogan

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Asia held a regional meeting in Manila from January 18 to January 23, 1960. To mark this event, the Manila post office used a commemorative slogan cancellation.

Jay Leach of Overseas Mailers produced a lovely cacheted cover mailed on the first day of the UNESCO meeting. The insert describes the important role played by UNESCO in Asia.
