Whitman County Historical Society Archivist Opposes Malden Post Office Closure

After visiting Malden, Wash., Whitman County Historical Society Archivist, Edwin P. Garretson, Jr., PhD, believes closing the Malden post office would likely be the death knell for the small town, and would force the elderly to travel an inconvenient distance to receive and send mail. Impressed with the site, he Garretson said he was impressed "with the old structure and the vribrant (sic) part it was so obviously playing in town during the hour I spent there."

Garretson took action, and sent a letter on Whitman County Historical Society letterhead to Doreen Karoly, District Discontinuance Coordinator. See Letters-to-the-Editor November 28, 2011.
