TLS, one page, 8.25 x 11, Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions letterhead, October 8, 1964. Letter to renowned conductor David Blum, in full: “I am delighted to learn that The Esterhazy Orchestra will pay tribute to the ninetieth birthday of one of the greatest men in the world, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, on 14 January 1965, and I am happy to join with you in honoring Dr. Schweitzer. One of the finest memories that my wife and I have is that of our two-weeks visit to Dr. Schweitzer in his Hospital in Lambarene, five years ago. I remember especially well the interesting discussions of scientific, political, and moral questions that I was privileged to have with Dr. Schweitzer, in his room, nearly every evening during the period of this visit to Lambarene. Please extend to Dr. Schweitzer the congratulations of both my wife and me, on his ninetieth birthday.” In very good to fine condition, with creasing to the vertical edges. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
