In 2003, "MailCube" concept, in the draft note idea stage, was conceived in by American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims, while in the process of drafting a three-volume treatise on "human thermodynamics" (see: Thims publications), itself dependent upon large scale book ordering, for research purposes, as a result of which frequent book ordering theft—up to seven or eight books stolen on one incident—became problematically, during the course of ordering some 945 books, from Amazon, from 2002 to 2015 (see: book orders).
In 2011, Prototypes began to be built and field-tested. During this period, friends and neighbors began to ask Thims to build and install MailCubes at their house. Thims, however, was still too heavily involved in research and writing; as a result of which the MailCube company realization sat on the back-burner (see: thermal word).
In 2016, after the completion of the publication of the 10-volume print set of Hmolpedia (see: progress report), Thims began to focus on the growth of MailCubes as a company.
In Jun 2017, a four-person staff (Ѻ), i.e. tetra-humanide partially activated complex (see: Gates model) was in formation.

See main: Chair of Physico-Chemical Sociology; See also: Gates modelOn 25 Apr 2016, Thims conceived the "two birds with one stone" idea that part of the proceeds from MailCubes will go towards the establishment, in America (e.g. Princeton) or Europe (e.g. Oxford), of the world's first Nightingale Chair of Social Physics, at yet to be named university, similar to the way the Rockefeller Foundation, in the 1950s, funded the Princeton Social Physics Project, or the way Ernst Solvay, from 1894 to 1910, using proceeds from his Solvay process (1861) invention, funded global social energetics conferences and education and, in France, established the Institute of Social Sciences.
“I think the [following] needs doing: [we need] a scheme from someone of high authority as to what should be the work and subjects in teaching ‘social physics’ and their practical application, in the event of our being able to obtain a statistical professorship or readership at the University of Oxford.”— Florence Nightingale (1891), “Letter to Francis Galton”, Feb 7

The base cost of the proposed American Nightingale Chair, as evidenced by the 2016 funded inception of the Appignani Chair of Atheism, at the University of Miami, is $2.2 million.
