Contest Time! Archie

Archie first appeared in the December 1941 issue of Pep Comics (#22) and became a syndicated daily newspaper strip in 1946. Since then the comic has become a beloved icon of American comics.

In 2010 Archie was one of five comic strips featured on the Sunday Funnies stamp pane (still available for purchase online as a Digital Color Postmark Keepsake or as an Uncut Press Sheet). To celebrate we are giving away a First Day of Issue ceremony program to the first five people to correctly answer the following question:

Archie and his pals attend Riverdale High School. What is the name of Archie’s homeroom teacher and of the school’s principal?

Send your answer to uspsstamps at gmail dot com. Winners will be notified by email. Good luck, and remember, spelling counts!
