The Postmaster General appointed postmasters from 1775, when Congress named Benjamin Franklin as the first Postmaster General, until 1836, when Congress ruled that postmasters must be appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate at post offices where annual compensation of a postmaster exceeded one thousand dollars.
