Hello, Ric:

I hadn't previously seen Railway Express Agency's operating structure. Here's how offices and messenger routes were assigned to Route Agents, who in turn reported to the Division Superintendent.


Other information not shown apparently divided offices into four classes based upon traffic revenue. Those reporting to the Superintendent's office --agencies in the largest cities-- prepared daily accounting records. Progressively smaller office sizes prepared weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly accounts.

Have you observed similar information for other grographic areas? I'm not trying to actively research REA operations, but do like to know what information is available.

Best wishes,
