This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Arthur Clarence Banta was born in Indiana on July 10, 1869.  While a resident of Fresno in 1894, Banta organized a bicycle brigade to deliver mail to San Francisco due to the railroad strike. 

He designed a bicycle stamp and a die was cut by engraver Eugene Donze.  This stamp was the first in the U.S. with a bicycle on it and the first green 25 cent stamp. 

A resident of San Francisco in 1935, he died in Oakland, CA on Oct. 1, 1945.
