DEAN RUSK
Dean Rusk sends a typed letter of thanks for letting him see the galley of Clifton Fadiman's THE LIFETIME READING PLAN.
Typed Letter Signed: "Dean Rusk" as President of the Rockefeller Foundation, 1p, 8x10. New York, 1960 January 6. To Miss Susan Gold, Publicity Manager, The World Publishing Company. In full: "Thank you very much for giving me a chance to see the galley of Clifton Fadiman's THE LIFETIME READING PLAN. I have no doubt but that it will be a valuable encouragement to many citizens who wish stimulation and guidance in their own reading programs, but it has been a systematic policy of mine not to comment on individual books. The policy stems from the difficulty which I would have as an officer of a foundation which is very heavily involved in research and publication in one way or another. Sincerely yours," When John F. Kennedy was elected President later in 1960, he selected Dean Rusk to be his Secretary of State. Rusk served through the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, from 1961-1969. Fadiman's book provided readers with brief, informative and entertaining introductions to over 100 classics of world literature. It is now in its fourth edition. Lightly creased. Nail head-size red stain at blank right margin. Staple holes at blank left corner. Fine condition.
