Typed Letter Signed: "Ed", in blue felt tip, 8x10½. October 25, 1967. Venice, Florida. In full: "Dear Mr. Brown: Your most interesting letter was received and the contents carefully noted. It was also thoughtful of you to send the clipping relative to the filming of The Man. Time has not yet permitted me to read the book, but I will do so at my first opportunity. While it is most encouraging that progress is being made in prestigious positions, I am hopeful, like yourself, that the great masses of Negro citizens can rise above the property level. With the help of concerned persons such as yourself, I am sure we can all feel optimistic about the future of our country. With kind regards, Sincerely yours". Edward W. Brooke III (1919-2015) was Attorney General of Massachusetts for two terms (1963-1967) before being elected to two terms in the US Senate (1967-1979). Brooke, the first African American to serve in the US Senate since Reconstruction, is also the last Republican elected to that office from Massachusetts. Brooke, whose contentious divorce was a factor in his unsuccessful bid for a third term, has declined to comment on recent claims by TV journalist Barbara Walters that she and the Senator had a prolonged affair during the 1970s. A combat veteran of World War II, Brooke received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004. Normal mailing folds. Staple holes in top left corner. Permanent mark on bottom left corner.
