Description

A newspaper article discussing the history of the succession of postmasters in Orlando, Florida. The article begins with the administration of E. W. Spier and ends with David R. Laycock. The article also describes the political nature of postmaster appointments through successive presidential administrations. As the political party in the White House changed, so did the postmaster of Orlando, as well. When the incumbent party was re-elected, typically, the postmaster would remain the same. This is what allowed W. R. O'Neal to become Orlando’s longest serving postmaster, to that point. O'Neal served as Orlando’s postmaster during the administration of William McKinley (1843-1901), Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), and William Howard Taft (1857-1930).
