THE ART OF THE UNITED STATES

POST OFFICE AND ITS STRUGGLE

FOR SURVIVAL

The United States Postal Service was

originated in 1775 during the second

Continental Congress. Benjamin

Franklin was appointed the first Post

Master General. The Post Service Act

created the post office in 1792. In

1872 it was transformed by the Postal

Reorganization Act to a cabinetlevel

department. It was transformed

into an independent agency of the

government as the United States Postal

Service. In recent decades it has been

forced to compete against private

delivery services such as United Parcel

Service, FedEx, and Amazon.

Before stamps were introduced into

the postal service, the recipient of mail

paid the deliverer for the mail received.

The Post Office first became involved

directly in art and promoting artists with

the first stamp designs used in 1847 with

the requirement of adhesive stamps be

used as postage. One of the earliest

stamps featured Ben Franklin as the first

postmaster general Since the late 1800s

over 4000 different stamps have been

designed for the U.S. Postal Service.

Many feature presidents and prominent

figures in society as well as current issues.

Stamp collectors cherish their collection

of U.S. postal stamps, some worth a few

dollars to several thousand dollars.

point in history.

During the era of the Great Depression

from the early 1930s into the 1940s the

New Deal legislation aimed at providing

employment for various professions

began granting artists employment by

painting murals at local post offices

throughout the United States. These

murals

became

historical

icons

of the

history

of that

period.

There

were

over 1,400

murals

painted in

Today

there is a movement by the U.S. Post

Office to preserve the murals that are

currently remaining.

Throughout

recent history

during the past

3 decades,

there has been

an effort by

conservative

politicians to privatize the postal service

One of the schemes introduced by

Republican legislators during the

George W. Bush administration was

titled the Postal Accountability and

Enhancement Act of 2006. This required

the U.S. Post Office to basically prefund

the value of earned retirement

obligations of postal employees for

a fifty-year period. This was for past

retirement promises which had not yet

come due for a ten-year time span.

This was a deliberate scheme to attempt

to bankrupt the U.S. Post Office. The

Enhancement Act of 2006 was passed

by a voice vote prior to a recess. Henry

Waxman at that time a representative

from California who had a mixed bag

of support for a variety of progressive

measures succumbed to the promise

of dark money from UPS and FedX to

provide his vote for this fiasco. The other

California representative to provide

his vote is the former felon involved in

a number of auto theft schemes and

eventually starting a company called

“Steal Stopper” car alarms. Who

etter to design auto theft prevention

devices than an auto thief. Issa’s

other involvements in the House of

Representatives have been to attempt

to prevent any progressive legislation

that is beneficial to the welfare of the

general public.

This attempt to

kill the U.S. Postal

Service was

exaggerated

during the Trump

administration

when Trump

installed Lous

DeJoy as

postmaster general. DeJoy former CEO

and on the board of directors of New

Breed Logistics freight company and

a major Republican Party donor and

fundraiser. He contributed $1.2 million

to Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign.

You would not expect this would have

any influence on his appointment to

postmaster general, especially since

he was on the board of a large logistics

company that had a $300. million

contract with the post office??? It was

demonstrated by the office of Budget

and Planning would have saved the

public $53 million using the post office

delivery services.

DeJoy came in strong and destructive.

The first attempts were to limit the

number of mail-in voters during the 2020

election by decommissioning hundreds

of high-speed mail sorting machines,

removed some mail sorting boxes from

streets. This caused major delays in mail

delivery. This was a deliberate attempt

on the part of Trump to influence the

election in his favor since mail-in ballots

were a favorite of Democratic voters.

Amid pressure from the public and

congress, DeJoy was forced to suspend

most of the changes, and in October

of 2020 the postal service reversed all

of his proposed changes. DeJoy is still

in office??? WHY?? Hopefully soon to

be gone. It just doesn’t seem logical to

have a postmaster general who wants

to eliminate the post office!

The art of the USPS locally only one

mural was found on the building at the

North Palm Springs post office a mural

reflecting the desert environment with

a coyote and cactus with mountains

on the horizon and a hint of wind

turbines against the mountains. No

information of the date of the mural or

the artist. The age of the mural is not

known probably several decades by the

This mural can be seen on the east wall

of the post office on Dillon Road about 1
