Oldest postmaster...not mistress

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer Verna Naylor,91, is the postal service's oldest female postmaster and the second oldest member of the Postal Service's staff of 700,000.

Reporter Cliff Radel says a recent database search by the post office gave 'The Oldest' title to 92-year-old Chester Reed, a mail handler in San Bernardino, California.

Naylor is quoted in the articles as saying she is a "postmaster," not a "postmistress," because she's a master of what she does.

She has been the Bentonville, Ohio postmaster since 1968 when her husband, Harry, when he died. He had been postmaster since 1948.
