Free booklet on history of Postal Service

Bill McAllister, the Washington correspondent for Linn's Stamp News reports the Postal Service's official 84-page publication, The United States Postal Service: and American History 1775-2006 is just off the press.

McAllister says, "It's an excellent compendium of the nation’s mail service, prepared and updated by Megaera Ausman, the Postal Service historian.

He goes on to say, "The new edition is enriched by more historic photographs. Noteworthy is a two-page spread of New Deal postal art from the lobbies of post offices in Arkansas, New Mexico, Missouri and Iowa.”

For a free copy write to Ms. Megaera Ausman at USPS Headquarters, 475 L'Efant PLaza, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20260-0012.
