Bliss and Fairweather designed this WPA-era post office, a government commission made to architects desperate for work during the Depression. Louis A. Simon (1867-1958) was the Supervising Architect, United States Department of the Treasury at the time; Neal A. Melick (1880-1953) was a consulting engineer who signed off on the structural integrity of post offices (and other federal buildings) across the US at this time.
