New York Times: Jan. 12, 2015 - Obituary: Actor Taylor Negron of 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' dies at 57
On June 13, 1920, the U.S. Post Office Department rules that children may not be sent by parcel post. It's never easy traveling with children and often it can be expensive. In the early 1900s, some people decided cut costs by mailing their children via parcel post. On February 19, 1914, the parents of four-year-old May Pierstorff mailed her from Grangeville, Idaho to her grandparents in Lewiston, Idaho.
