Nobel Prize winner Mother Teresa and Oscar-winning actress Katharine Hepburn will be honoured on U.S. postage stamps next year.

Joining them will be singing cowboy Gene Autry, artist Winslow Homer and Adm. Arleigh Burke.

Other new stamps will honour the Negro baseball leagues and the Hawaiian rain forest, the Postal Service announced on Wednesday.

The U.S. post office releases a series of commemorative stamps every year, honouring people, places and institutions. These stamps remain on sale for a limited period and are widely collected.
