Olive Harriette Nuhfer is among the ranks of dead artists who are little more, as far as the world wide web is concerned, than names on lists and family trees in paywalled obituaries. She painted a portrait of Eisenhower, but if you can find an image of it online, your search skills are better than mine (don’t get cocky, mine aren’t great). She appears on lists of Texas artists and in some exhibit catalogs (no images). She made a wonderful painting of a welder. She made one post office mural: The Daily Mail (Westerville, Ohio).

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
