POSTPONED: History Talk: Flying the Mail in Centre County, 1918-1949

Sunday, Jun 30, 2013 2:00p to 3:00p

With World War II just ending, the U.S. Post Office Department committed to building the first transcontinental airmail system, in which Bellefonte had a profound role, acting as the first official landing spot between Long Island and Cleveland. Kitty Wunderly, a local historian and author of Bellefonte and the Early Airmail, will make a presentation on the development of America’s first system of airmail. This event is hosted by the Centre County Historical Society.
