BATMAN No. 59, "Batman In The Future," June 1, 1950 (in store date April 12, 1950):
"The Post Office initiated the ZIP code in July 1,1963, but the idea of a Zoning Improvement Plan (ZIP) to offer more efficient mail delivery had actually been born some time earlier. A Philadelphia postal worker named Robert A. Moon actually had the idea back in the 1940s, according to his 2001 obituary in the New York Times, but Post Office officials apparently were not interested."
