People and the Post: a digital memory book
The Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum hosts a digital memory book entitled People and the Post. The book collects and publishes stories about postal people and events — as told by current and former employees of the U.S. Postal Service. In addition to written word, participants have the opportunity to submit photos, videos and audio stories.
While most Americans easily recognize the uniformed letter carrier, most know little about the majority of postal employees who process and manage their daily mail.
People and the Post invites you to change this dynamic by sharing work-related stories with the general public. As a postal worker (current or retired), you are helping the Smithsonian National Postal Museum bring the history of America’s postal workers to life for millions across the U.S. and around the globe. Your stories, and those from the tens of thousands of other postal workers, will combine to showcase the depth and breadth of the history of our postal system, and its contributions to American history.
