POSTCARD JACK FINALLY IDENTIFIED

Morning Sentinel - Postcard Jack, the enigmatic world traveler who sent thousands of postcards to a] [Madson Main Street restaurant over the span of three decades, and inspired the name of the winningest, standard-bred racehorse in Maine history, has died. John "Jack" Garbarino, died Dec. 15 in New York City. He was 67. . .

Postcard Jack, a management consultant with ITT, Dun & Bradstreet and McKinsey & Co., sent an estimated 8,000-9,000 postcards from all over the world to the Oasis Restaurant -- sometimes posting 100 cards in a single month. . .

Although he visited the restaurant, now called River's Edge, several times over the years, he never revealed his identity. The mystery of Postcard Jack remained just that -- a mystery -- for more than 30 years

Until now. .
