National Association of Letter Carriers Exhibit

An exhibit celebrating the 120 year history of the National Association of Letter Carriers, “Still Delivering: A History of the Letter Carriers,” is now open to the public at the Walter P. Reuther Library.

Sponsored by Wayne State University’s Walter P. Reuther Library, the exhibit tells the story of the men and women who have devoted their lives to make sure the mail is delivered to homes and businesses six days a week, using documents, photographs and other objects from the library’s National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Historical Collection.

The exhibit focuses on the significance of the historical development of the NALC, the evolution of mail delivery, and the courageous men and women who not only keep the nation informed, but also contribute to the social well being of America in so many ways.

“Still Delivering: A History of the Letter Carriers” will be available for viewing in the Walter P. Reuther Library atrium on the campus of Wayne State University Sept. 22 through June 2010. Viewing hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The exhibit is free.

For more information about the exhibit, contact the Walter P. Reuther Library Monday through Friday (313) 577-4024
