Description:
Postal History of Southeastern Washington covers the five counties that make up Washington state: Asotin, Columbia, Franklin, Garfield, and Walla Walla Counties. Profusely illustrated and footnoted, in addition to post office starting and ending dates, sample devices, and scans of covers, the author lists the postmasters who served each office. In addition, there are close to 75 pages of postmaster biographies listed alphabetically by county.

Robert Keatts did his first postal related writing in junior high school when he wrote a paper about women on postage stamps. Since then he has worked in a variety of fields from being an administrative specialist in the U. S. Air Force, developing a winter identification key for deciduous plants at an environmental center, working as an interpretive naturalist for the National Park Service and writing a booklet on the mining history of the North Fork Skokomish River. He has contributed articles to the American Philatelist and La Posta: A Journal of American Postal History. In 2003 he completed and published Postal History of Walla Walla County Washington with a revised edition in 2013.

As a fourth generation native of eastern Washington, Robert Keatts is well versed in a variety of fields and has found something to write about in all of them. His knowledge of family history and genealogical research contributed to the success of postmaster biographic sketches in this book.

In his previous postal history writings he received reviews from La Posta and local author Bill Gulick. The similarities in this book follow a path that will bring postal historians, philatelist and inquisitive minds a trove of information that will be useful for historical research, genealogy and education for philatelists.
