UPS followed its story until 1907, when James E. Casey, 19, and another teenager, Claude Ryan, established the American Mail Company in Seattle. With a loan of USD 100 as their first capital, they established a shop in a basement under Ryan’s uncle’s tavern. The first employees bought and delivered the goods either on foot or bicycle. A second office was established in 1912.
