ALAN CRANSTON
He supports a $600,000 funding proposal for The Office of Education
Typed Letter signed: "Alan Cranston" as Senate Majority Whip, 2p, 8½x11. On personal Senate letterhead. Washington, D.C., 1973 June 13. To Dr. Herman Goldberg, Director of the Office of Emergency School Aid. In full: "I understand that Region Nine of the Office of Education is recommending funding in the amount of $600,000 for an Inservice Cultural Education proposal submitted by the Greater Los Angeles Urban Coalition under the Emergency School Aid Act. I write to express my complete support for this proposal. Also, I urge that this teacher training project--which addresses a deficiency common to urban desegration is just half that requested by the Coalition. It means a cutback in teachers to be served from 2400 to 1200. Also, the community involvement component, which would have drawn some 900 parents into the program, has been deleted to conform with cost reductions sought by Region. As you may know, the Urban Coalition proposal was intended originally to work in concert with a major ESA desegration proposal submitted by the Los Angeles Unified School District. The Los Angeles proposal, I understand, has been declared ineligible and will not be funded. My concern here is with funding of this significant effort of the Coalition, which I believe will add impetus to the Los Angeles Schools' plan to reduce minority isolation. I respectfully request your favorable consideration of the Urban coalition proposal. Sincerely". Alan Cranston (1914-2000) served as Democratic Senator from California from 1969-1993.From 1977-1991, he was the Democratic Whip. From 1936-1938, he was a foreign correspondent for International News Service (now UPI). He attributed much of the American public's misperceptions of Nazism to a version of Hitler's Mein Kampf. Having read the original German version, Cranston drafted a word-for-word translation of the book, which was published. His version at a cover price of 10-cents, sold over 500,000 copies (it included Cranston's comments against Nazism). Hitler successfully sued him for copyright infringement and unauthorized revision. Cranston accepted $1 million in contributions from constituent, Charles H. Keating, Jr., the head of the Lincoln Federal Savings and Loan Association. He was one of the "Keating Five" and the only one to receive a formal reprimand by the Select Committee on Ethics in 1991 for "improper conduct". Normal mailing folds. Adhesive tape at corner. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
