1913 - After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples.
Giant skull..FYI -100s of discoveries were found in the U.S, only for it to be ignored or taken away by Smithsonians never to be seen again...One of the sculls from the discovery in Nevada used to be on display in a museum in Winnemucca. It was taken out. They said because "people kept looking at it" Isn't that what you do at a museum ?The rest were stolen by the Smithsonian.
