Signed, typed letter (1981) to retired Ambassador Ben Hill Brown, who had attended a conference organized by Heinz
Typed Letter signed: "John Heinz" as US Senator, 1 page, 8½x11. Washington, D.C., 1981 November 13. On Senate letterhead to Ambassador Ben Hill Brown, Alexandria, Virginia. In full: "Let me express my personal thanks to you for attending the 'Successor Generation' conference organized by me on November 3. I think the conference offered a forum for some useful interchange of ideas, and I am very pleased at both the turnout and the response. I hope you gained - as I did - some new insight into both the inter-generational and the international aspects of the problem. I am convinced that, on both sides of the Atlantic, we need to work harder to achieve mutual understanding. I hope that soon we will see an American initiative to complement the German program outlined by Dr. Hamm-Bruecher. Thank you again for coming to the conference. If you have any further thoughts or suggestions on the Successor Generation Problem, please don't hesitate to contact me. Yours sincerely". Henry John Heinz III (1938-1991), grandson and namesake of the H. J.

His widow, Teresa, later married US Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry. Ben Hill Brown (1914-1989) was a career foreign service officer who served as US Ambassador to Liberia from 1964 until his retirement in 1969. Heinz' Successor Generation Conference, aimed at maintaining friendly trans-Atlantic relations among youths in both countries, resulted in an expanded German-US student exchange program, jointly funded by the legislatures of the two countries.
