Description

In selecting "a few 'greatest' figures in American history," the Princeton President believes that he would "almost certainly, commit the error of picking out the most conspicuous"

TLS, one page, 6 x 8.25, Princeton University letterhead, February 13, 1907. Letter to Frank Munsey, the editor of The Scrap Book, a magazine founded to republish interesting stories and articles previously published elsewhere. In full: "I should very much like to oblige you by complying with the request of your circular letter of February 11th, but it has always seemed to me impossible to give a satisfactory answer to such questions. There are so many fields of greatness that in picking out a few 'greatest' figures in American history, one would probably, indeed almost certainly, commit the error of picking out the most conspicuous." In fine condition, with intersecting folds.
