The Milwaukee Letter Carriers Association organizes the founding meeting of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC).  With approximately sixty carriers attending from eighteen states, NALC was founded in a meeting hall above Schaefer’s saloon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  [Photo:  After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent – with stamps attached to their clothing – and delivered to their destinations.  The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail.]
