The Nobel Prize-winning economist responds to a collector in 1982.
Typed Letter signed: "T. W. Schultz", 1 page, 8½x11. Chicago, Illinois, 1982 August 9. On University of Chicago letterhead Elwood, New York. In full: "Kindly tell me why I should 'sign' your 'first day of issue' saving and loan stamped envelope? You have my personal autograph on the offprint of my Nobel Lecture--not on a first issued stamp. Sincerely,". Theodore W. Schultz (1902-1998), of the University of Chicago, shared the 1979 Nobel Prize in Economics with Sir Arthur Lewis for their pioneering research into economic development, with particular consideration of the problems of developing countries. A recurring theme in Schultz' writing was that agricultural improvements in developing nations were hindered by government policies favoring the urban population. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Lightly soiled on verso. Fine condition.
