The author and publisher signs a personal letter to congratulate activist Ben Mandel of the Internal Security Subcommittee, Washington, D.C.
Typed letter signed: "Devin Garrity ", in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. New York City, New York, August 17, 1959. On personal letterhead at Devin-Adair Publishers Company, To "Dear Ben" Internal Security Subcommittee, Washington, D.C., in full: "May I congratulate you on a job well done. America has needed men like you, knowledgeable, incorruptible and with determination to expose the dreadful octopus of Communism wherever it could be found and let the chips fall where they may. I hope you will continue to be of service even though you have retired. At this point you are certainly not expendable. With best regards." And postscript, "And if you ever decided to write a book about what you known that hasn't been publicized I would be interested." Devin Adair Garrity (1906-1981) assumed presidency of Devin-Adair Publishing Company in 1939 after the death of his father, Henry Garrity, former president and founder of the company. Established in 1911 in New York City, Devin-Adair Publishers relocated to Old Greenwich, Connecticut in 1970. In the beginning the company only published books on poetry and ornithology; however, they began to publish books on political conservatism and anti-communism under Garrity's direction. Garrity, also a writer, authored Irish poems and short stories including 44 Irish Short Stories. Ben Mandel (1887-1973) served as the director of research for the House Un-American Activities Committee and the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. Beginning as a New York City school teacher, Mandel for a time used to work for the Communists until he was expelled in 1930 as member of the Lovestoneites. He then became a dedicated anti-communist which led to his positions in Washington. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Nicks at right edge. Creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
