Lagerloef, Hans (1880 - 1952)
- Post Office owner
Hans Lagerloef was a generous philatelist, and donated many of his collections during his lifetime to institutions, including the Smithsonian. Some time after 1912 he acquired both values of the Post Office stamps. He did so, it seems, with the intent of gifting the stamps to the Swedish postal museum, for he didn’t want his own country's postal museum to be outshone by the Reichspostmuseum in Berlin.
