He signs a typed 1943 letter to American Zionist leader Emanuel Neumann.
Typed Letter signed: "Felix Frankfurter" as Associate Justice, 1 page, 5¾x9. Washington, D.C., 1943 May 19. On his Supreme Court Chambers letterhead to Emanuel Neumann. In full: "I am obliged to you for letting me see the report by Mr. A. L. Wathen which I read with very great interest. With good wishes. Yours very sincerely". Austrian born jurist Felix Frankfurter (1882-1965) was legal counsel to the US War Department before and during World War I, and then a professor at Harvard Law School. In 1939, President Franklin Roosevelt appointed him to the US Supreme Court, where he served until 1962. Emanuel Neumann, the addressee here, was an American Zionist Leader who had worked closely with Frankfurter to establish the American Palestine Committee. Neumann and Frankfurter both gave speeches at the 1932 founding meeting of the organization, whose aim was to demonstrate support for a Jewish homeland among Americans of all faiths. (Vice President Curtis attended the founding meeting, to which a letter of support was also read from President Hoover.) By 1941, when Neumann returned from Palestine and reorganized the APC, its membership included over two-thirds of the US Senate and hundreds of members of the House of Representatives. File creases not near signature. A. L. Wathen was Director of the Irrigation Division of the US Department of Indian Affairs. What report of his had attracted the interest of Frankfurter and Neumann might merit further research. Did it concern methods of making the desert bloom? File and staple holes at upper margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
