The Secret History of the US Postal Service
Posted October 07, 2018 07:52:33In a time before social media, the United States Postal Service was a secretive organization.
For a few years before World War II, it had only one employee: an American, William “Bill” White, who worked in his family’s post office in Baltimore.
In 1946, the Postal Service had been merged with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
In the 1950s, it became the U.S. Government’s main mail delivery system, and was reorganized in 1961.
It was then that White decided to start a documentary series that would document the Postal System’s history.
In 1961, White was hired by the American Broadcasting Company to document the post office.
The Postal Service’s archives and newsrooms were closed down after the 1960s.
White would have been the first person to document what was then the largest, most secretive organization in the United Kingdom.
He would go on to become one of the most famous journalists working in the world, as well as one of his greatest critics, but the documentary never made it to the screen.
That’s because, for a time, the Post Office refused to let anyone see the footage.
The film was never shown to the public.
The only footage of the agency has been published in a series of books called The Secret Government, which is a collection of White’s interviews.
This week, the film will be shown in London, England, as part of a public exhibition called The Postal Archives.
I spoke to White about his film and what we can learn about the Postal Archive.1.
What was the first documentary you ever made?2.
What is the best part of the Postal Archives?3.
What were the most shocking things that happened in the archive?1.
The first documentary I ever made was called “The Postal Archives.”
It was about a guy named William White who was a mail carrier in Baltimore and had a really strong passion for the Postal Union.
He was an incredibly good person.
He always had a smile on his face.
And he was a very patriotic guy, which was something that was quite rare.
He worked in the Baltimore Post Office and would drive through the city with his wife and their daughter.
He’d get to the post offices, the main post offices in Baltimore, and he’d drive through, like, three days in a row to the Postmaster’s Office.
And this was before Facebook, when everyone had a camera and people could go and take pictures.
But William was a really, really good man.
And as he was driving through the neighborhoods, and it’s a fairly small part of what he was doing, he was being stalked by a man who knew he was working at the Post office.
And then he started doing this crazy story about, you know, how he was going to kill the man.
He wanted to kill him.
And the Postman said, You know, you can’t kill him because he’s your employee.
And so, he says, I’m going to get rid of you.
And, you have to say, What?
You can’t do that.
And they said, No, we can’t.
But the guy said, Well, we’ll just take his phone number and call you.
I said, What’s the phone number?
And he said, I’ll give it to you.
So he took his phone, he called his wife, and she’s like, Where’s your husband?
And then I was like, Oh, no, you don’t know where your husband is.
And she’s really upset.
And that’s when he said he had to kill my boss.
And I was just like, How do you know?
And I went back and looked at all the records that were kept by him, and I was really shocked.
And when I looked at the records, I was shocked, because I thought, He said he was gonna kill my husband?
So then I said what was the reason why he did that?
And they kept saying, Well he’s a postal worker, and we just don’t need to know.
And for that reason, I decided to do it.2.
Did you work in the Postal Services archives before you did this film?3, Did you ever have a sense of what was going on?
I worked in Post Offices and at the main Post Office in Baltimore for many years.
I was in the bureau for the whole of that period.
And what we were doing was we were going to have our employees put out to work, and then we would look at them, and they would get a note saying, I have a letter from a lawyer.
And it said, Your job is now to look after my client, but I need you to tell the lawyer that you’ve seen this person.
And we would send it to them and then they would call me, and the lawyers would come in and say, Oh
