This collection contains the professional and personal papers of Ethel Tulloch both during and after her tenure in the San Diego Post Office.
Ethel Tulloch was born in Washington D.C. and moved to San Diego in 1907 with her parents Seymore W and Jessie S. Tulloch, her brother Thomas Tulloch, and sister Helen Tulloch Bowles (known locally as “Jitney Jane”). Ethel was employed by the Post Office for almost 20 years where she became deeply involved with the labor union, the National Federation of Post Office Clerks. In 1919, she was elected as 5th Vice President making her the first woman to be appointed to the governing board of the national organization. She went on to rise to become the second Vice President. In 1924 she resigned from the Postal Service to pursue charitable actives through her church.
