U.S. Postmasters Marketing Materials for the 1938 & 1948 Anniversary Celebrations of The First Air Mail Delivery

If you are a postal collector you will love this little archive of carefully treasured items from a Postmaster in a very small town in central Massachusetts. She received a letter in 1938 about the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of said flight telling her of what materials would be coming. In a small envelope is her Post Office's designed cachet.  There is a booklet and press release from 1948 but no cachet. These have been marked by her as she prepared for the events. On the back of the '48 guide there are 15 Planes which would be going into Worcester Mass. as part of the celebration. Folks who wanted a special souvenir were instructed to bring her a piece of self addressed airmail that she would endorse for this historic US Mail event. Surprisingly most of the paper is almost like the math paper of my youth (yes, I'm that old) and I think it is still in good condition considering its age. There are no stamps with any of this. Just 4 short months later to the day was the Great Hurricane of 1938! (6-20-16)
