Today in Comics History, May 26: Happy birthday, John Galvin!

You might have noticed this previously in the Herb Trimpe thread, but it's also the birthday of John Galvin from the Marvel Comics mailroom in the 70s, 80s, and 90s!

Eliot R. Brown has a couple of great photos of that period's Marvel Mailroom and John over at his blog! OneTwo

And say, just where is the Mighty Marvel Mailroom in the Bullpen? You'll find John there!
