Moravian through the Mail

Long before Twitter, e-mail, and cell phone text messages, postcards helped busy people stay connected. Students, alumni, and visitors to Moravian College during the early twentieth century could choose from a variety of scenic postcards, and you can view many of them online at an exhibit created by College archivist Jan Ballard. The exhibit displays Moravian postcards published between 1901 and the 1960s, along with a modern view of each site and notes about its use, then and now.

The postcards were collected by Edward C. Schultz ’62, who graduated from Moravian College with a degree in history. Ed Schultz was a social studies teacher for 31 years in the Parkland School District and an avid collector of postcards. Upon his death in 2004, his wife, Nancy, donated his collection of Moravian College postcards to the College Archives to encourage students to study, appreciate, and enjoy their heritage.
