How was UPS Founded?

Today I found out UPS was started by two teenagers with one bicycle and $100 borrowed from a friend.

The date was August 28, 1907 and the two kids were 18 year old Claude Ryan and 19 year old Jim Casey.  The two had one bike between them and $100 borrowed from a friend to found the "American Messenger Company" in Seattle, Washington.  The company was initially run in a hotel basement at Second Avenue and Main Street in Seattle.>
