Short News Items from 1959

Mrs. E.E. McGrew called in last week to say she thought the postman on their route was wonderful. He delivered a package, colored slides which had been sent to Hollywood to be developed, which was addressed only to “Mrs. E.E.” Since it didn’t even say Medford, Mrs. McGrew wasn’t quite sure how it had even arrived in the city. When Postman Ivan Lantz arrived at the McGrew’s door with the package, he said “This must be for you – you people are the only ones I know who receive this kind of mail from Hollywood.” The McGrews, who lived at 1433 East McAndrews road, would have been sorry indeed to have the slides lost, for they had been taken during the holidays. (Medford Mail Tribune, January 25, 1959)
