      Hi guys,

      Malcolm sent me a file a while back and I've finally found some space to
      post it. Here's a description...

      Howard Carleton Oaksford (1894-1980) was a native of Gloversville, New
      York. His entire working life was spent with the U.S. Mail Railway Post
      Office Service, mostly running from New York to Chicago on the New York
      Central Railroad. He was a very modest, quiet person who identified
      himself in the picture captions only by his initials, HCO. His great
      pride in the accomplishments of the railway mail service is evident in
      this booklet which he distributed to his friends and associates after
      his retirement.

      This booklet is pretty neat and I know you'll guys will enjoy it. It is
      a large file and may take a few minutes to load up, give it time.
      Thanks to Malcolm for sharing this. Sorry it took so long to post Mal!

      Gino
