UseZipCode

The postmaster of the United States Postal Service introduced the five-digit ZIP
code. The term is an acronym for Zoning Improvement Plan. Robert Moon, an
employee of the post office, is considered to be the father of the ZIP code. He
submitted his proposal in 1944 for the initial three-digit code while working as
a postal inspector.
