"Still Delivering: A History of the Letter Carriers" exhibit opening Sept. 22 at Wayne State University's Walter P. Reuther Library

September 3, 2009

An exhibit celebrating the 120-year history of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), "Still Delivering: A History of the Letter Carriers," will open to the public at Wayne State University's Walter P. Reuther Library on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Sponsored by the Walter P. Reuther Library, the exhibit tells the story of the men and women who have devoted their lives to ensure that the mail is delivered to homes and businesses six days a week, using documents, photographs and other objects from the library's NALC Historical Collection.

The exhibit focuses on the significance of the historical development of the NALC, the evolution of mail delivery, and the 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 located on the campus of Wayne State University at 5401 Cass Avenue, Detroit. Viewing hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The free exhibit is open to the public and will run from Sept. 22 through June 2010.
