By Milford Zornes
California Post Office Mural
In letters found among the papers of Milford Zornes there was correspondence from artist and WPA Administrator George Biddle regarding some disagreement with the WPA Administration as to the placement of the mural which they wanted to be on one wall. Eventually Zornes was able to accomplish the project as he had proposed with help from noted artist Millard Sheets who was serving as a Regional WPA official at the time, explaining that the artist would be more knowledgeable as to the best placing of the mural.
The mural remains an art treasure in Claremont, viewed by all who look up while in the Post Office.
