About the Author
David W. Gates Jr. is an award winning author and post office enthusiast who has traveled thousands of miles nationwide in search of historic post office buildings and art. He blogs about his work at: www.postofficefans.com. Although the murals have been around for more than 86 years, David discovered how often these are overlooked. Join David in his quest to visit them all. He lives in Crystal Lake, IL with his wife and son. When not photographing and documenting post offices, he can be found cooking, baking, hiking, or involved in do-it-yourself projects at home, not necessarily all at once and not necessarily in that order.

"The book is described by the author as a tour guide to Wisconsin's post office murals. As such, it is the perfect travel companion for those seeking out the unique character of some of Wisconsin's communities. But it is so much more. This book perfectly illustrates the customs, heritage, and history of Wisconsin's small towns as seen through the eyes of artists of the New Deal."

-L. Robert Puschendorf, Nebraska State Historical Society (retired); author, Nebraska's Post Office Murals: Born of the Depression, Fostered by the New Deal

"This book would be a fantastic addition to any library, private or public. Hopefully, a copy will be placed in every Wisconsin school. It is a joyful book. The text is educationally sound, and the colorful photographs are fine examples of paintings and other artwork of that era."

-Howard Hull, University of Tennessee (retired); author, Tennessee Post Office Murals
