National Archives, Central Plains Region Murals – Kansas City MO

Description

Edward Buk Ulreich painted two murals for the Columbia, Missouri, post office in 1937: “Indians Watching Stagecoach in the Distance” and “Pony Express.” He was paid $1,580 for his murals, commissioned by the Department of the Treasury’s Section of Painting and Sculpture. After the post office moved to a new location, the murals were moved to city offices where they stayed from 1967-2004. In 2010, they were installed at the National Archives at Kansas City, located in Missouri.
