To celebrate Women’s History Month, Nancy Pope, Chief Curator of Postal History at the National Postal Museum, will talk about the Dead Letter Office, a unique part of America’s postal system since 1777. Undeliverable mail and packages ended up at the Dead Letter Office, where specialists tried to decipher handwriting, incomplete addresses, and other ambiguities. What does all this have to do with Women’s History Month? Join us at the lecture to find out!
