Charles E. Whittaker sends a typed letter of regret that he will not be able to speak to the committee in March 1973 because he goes to warmer climates during that time.
Typed Letter signed: "Charles E. Whittaker", 1p, 8½x11. Kansas City, Missouri, 1972 October 24. On his personal letterhead to Mr. Doug Voegler, Lincoln, Nebraska.In full: "I acknowledge and have considered your letter of October 20 asking, as Chairman of the Nebraska union Talks and Topics Committee of the University of Nebraska, whether I will be available and willing to speak, under the auspices of your Committee, to the student body in late March 1973. Although, deliberately, I make fewer such public addresses than in former years, I still do, on select occasions - - that present and opportunity to say something that I think needs to be said - - accept invitations to speak, but inasmuch as it has become our practice in recent years to spend the month of March in a warm climate, and we expect to do so next March, I must say that it will not be conveniently possible for me to accept your appreciated invitation. In compliance with your second request, I enclose [not present] an autographed photograph of myself. Very sincerely," Appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court by Eisenhower in 1957, he retired in 1962 due to ill health. File holes at right margin. Light show through of tape stains on verso. Fine condition.
