COVID Card #355

April 25, 2021 | 0 comments

The existence of a living painter named Richard Jansen makes researching Richard H. Jansen (on the web) a bit difficult. Richard H. Jansen was, of course, a post office muralist. Like many of the postoffice muralists, Jansen seems to have at spent time in the midwest and had ties to Wisconsin. You can see a photo of Jansen, along with other WPA artists, and some of their work here. You can also see examples of his work on the website for the United States Army Art Collection.

Jansen created three post office muralists: Threshing Wheat (Sauk Centre, Minnesota), Threshing Grain (Lincolnton, North Carolina), and Dairy Farming (Reedsburg, Wisconsin).

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.
