1933 Letter Finds Way to Rightful Owners
A Colorado woman who was finally able to deliver a letter postmarked in 1933 to the family of its intended recipient said her mother found the item in 1960.
Vicki Berg said her mother discovered the letter, addressed to W.J. Chafee at the Purina company and his wife Margaret Ann, and some accompanying photos when she moved into her Westminster home in 1960 and she asked Vicki to find their rightful owner about a year before her death, KMGH-TV, Denver, reported Wednesday.
“They’ve looked at me for years and I didn’t know where they were supposed to go,” Berg said.
Berg said she and a friend enlisted the help of KMGH-TV producer Marianne Mckiernan when they were unable to locate the family on their own.
