“His has been a good life—devoted to helping his fellow Americans to a better understanding of each other”


Handwritten tribute letter, signed “Alfred A Knopf,” one page, 8 x 10.75, no date, but 1943. Tribute to Walter White commemorating his 25 years of service to the NAACP. In full: “It is a great pleasure to join his many friends in paying tribute to Walter White. His has been a good life—devoted to helping his fellow Americans to a better understanding of each other, and of what is perhaps the most important and the most difficult of their many problems. It is hard to realize he has been at it for a quarter century, and that I have known him for nearly all that time. Good luck, Walter! And much happiness to you!” In fine condition. White was a civil rights activist who led the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for almost a quarter of a century and directed a broad program of legal challenges to segregation and disfranchisement. Having both African and European ancestry, he and his family identified as Negro and lived among Atlanta's Negro community. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
