A presidential promotion of natural beauty

TLS as president, one page, 7 x 10.25, White House letterhead, August 9, 1965. Letter to New York Congressman Seymour Halpern, in full: “I am sending you a brochure that presents, in summary form, the proceedings of the recent White House Conference on Natural Beauty. I thought that the recommendations would be of interest to you. The conference was planned, as you know, to discover and recommend ways to bring natural beauty into the daily lives of all Americans. It has been a source of pleasure and inspiration to me to see the great public interest developing in natural beauty. Several of our Governors have already scheduled conferences on natural beauty as I suggested in my remarks to the conference delegates here in Washington. Some of our State Highway Departments have devoted a portion of their Federal aid construction funds to the preservation of scenic beauty along their highway systems. Municipalities, school systems, private organizations, and individuals have written to tell of their projects and to offer their assistance in this national effort to improve the quality of our lives. I am sending copies of this brochure to many of our county and city government leaders across this great country. I hope that these recommendations will be studied and put to work to build a more beautiful America.” In fine condition.
