Harding avoids an impractical education commission
Description                           Estimate: $1,500+          

TLS as president, one page, 7 x 9, White House letterhead, August 18, 1921. Letter to Charles C. Fisher, in part: “The suggestion you make respecting the educational investigation is one very much worth while, but I do not think it would be practical to venture upon such an undertaking at the present time. We are in the process of reorganization of some of the departments and I have a good many crossed wires with the departments among the educational leaders. I would not want to submit myself to any possible criticism on their part. I could name Hope for such a commission without invoking criticism, but I could not do as much for my sister without setting a great many tongues to wagging in an unfriendly way. Later on perhaps the suggestion will be entirely practical and wholly desirable to carry out…it would be a great pleasure to consider Hope in such a collection and I would have every confidence that she would render a great service. She is a very bright, capable and wholly sensible young woman.” Archivally repaired central horizontal tear extending the full width of the letter, otherwise fine condition. Provenance: The Everett Fisher Collection. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
