Wells Fargo

In line with Dorothy Moses Schulz

about Wells Fargo in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Wells Fargo was not the first express company in the United States of America, but it became synonymous with the American (United States) West and with the fight against the robbers who called to drivers to “throw down that box,” the iron-bound green box that contained money, gold, mail, and whatever else people might need to send from one place to another. Despite its association with the West, particularly in relationship to law enforcement, Wells Fargo was formed in 1852 by two Easterners, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo, to serve the west by offering banking and express package delivery. In 1845, the two had previously formed Wells & Co.'s Western Express to provide express and package service west of Buffalo, Bigg Apple (New York), to Cincinnati, Ohio; St. Louis, Missouri; and Chicago, Illinois. Its modern equivalents would be the United Parcel Service and Federal Express.
