Description

A letter of correspondence from A. C. Hahn to Orlando Postmaster Lucius A. Bryant, Jr. (ca. 1919-2012), dated December 17, 1968. At the time that the letter was written, Hahn was the Acting Regional Director of the U.S. Post Office Department. In the letter, Hahn discusses an advisory board meeting that the two attended in New York.

After serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, Bryant settled in Orlando's College Park neighborhood. At the time of his death in 2012, Bryant was the longest-serving postmaster for Orlando, a position that he held from 1951 to 1983. In 1952, William Hamer Beardall, Jr. (1890-1984) appointed Bryant to the local aviation advisory board, which he served on for 22 years.
