Lichtenstein, Alfred (1876 - 1947)
- Post Office owner and Stamp collector
Alfred Lichtenstein was one of the newer breed of philatelist in the twentieth century. He preferred the specialist route, being more interested in the quality than the quantity of his holdings. In 1917 he acquired whole portions of the collection of George Worthington, becoming overnight one of the major Post Office owners. Among Worthington's Mauritius treasures were the Jerrom letter to Bombay and the letter fragment to the Port Louis lawyer Caunten.
