Historical Note

The National Association of Postmasters of the United States traces its origin to Detroit, Michigan in 1898. Thirty-seven years later in 1936, the Michigan chapter of the N.A.P.U.S. was granted its charter. The N.A.P.U.S. work principally to enhance postmasters political and financial status. The first state president under the new charter was Roscoe B. Huston, postmaster of Detroit.
