Karl Malden Post Office

Shown on the left is Postmaster General Jack Potter with Academy Award winning actor (and former member of the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee) Karl Malden.

Malden,93, had a West Los Angeles post office named after him this week.

On hand to honor him at the event were family members, and lifetime friend Kirk Douglas. Kirk’s son, Michael, could not attend, but sent a letter teasing his former co-star with the line, “Karl — a stamp of your own wasn’t enough? You had to have an entire Post Office?”

Postmaster General Jack Potter spoke glowingly of Malden’s work on behalf of the Postal Service. Malden made a number of USPS public service announcements during his time on the CSAC. “The Postal Service has had no better friend in the last 15 years than Karl Malden,” Potter said. “And Karl, today I say to you — thank you. Thank you very much!”
