Package Delivered After 63 Years

01.03.13 11:10 AM

SCRANTON, Pa., (UPI) –* Employees of a Pennsylvania newspaper said they were baffled when a calendar ordered by a former general manager showed up 63 years after his death.

Bobby Lynett, a publisher of The Scranton Times-Tribune and chief executive officer of Times-Shamrock Communications, said the 1950 Pennsylvania Railroad calendar was rolled in a long tube and addressed to James Flanagan, general manager of The Scranton Times, who died in December 1949, the Times-Tribune reported Thursday.

Lynett said the package, which bore two 4-cent stamps and a much newer sticker dated from a distribution center last week, was delivered without explanation Friday to the newspaper’s front desk.

Ray Daiutolo, a spokesman for the Postal Service, said the calendar’s whereabouts for the past 63 years are a mystery. He said lost mail sometimes makes its way back into circulation when a machine is dismantled or a post office is renovated. He said stamped but unmailed objects are also sometimes discovered after many years by people who then drop the items in the mail.

Lynett said the calendar will be offered to officials at the Steamtown National Historic Site to see if they want to display it. He said it will otherwise be displayed in The Scranton Times-Tribune building.

“We’ll find a good home for it. That’s for sure,” he said.
