JOSEPH A. GWYER
Letter sent to Benjamin Mandel, apologizing for not being able to make it to his retirement party
Typed Letter signed: “Joe”, in black ink, 8½x11. No place, 1967 November 14. Addressed to “Mr. Benjamin Mandel/ Senate Internal Security Subcommitee/ New Senate Office building, Room 2228/ Washington, D.C.”. To “Dear Mr. Mandel”. In full:Due to a long-standing committment [sic] to the Dade County Bar Association, I will not be able to see you in person this coming Wednesday. I am sorry to see you retire from the active fight against communism, yet knowing your convictions and zeal, I am sure that your retirement will not deprive all of us, who have been acquainted with you for years, of your wisdom and judgement [sic] on matter of communist subversion at home./ With very best wishes/ Sincerely yours”. Benjamin Mandel (1887-1973) was a New York City school teacher and activist. He joined the Communist Party in 1920 as "Bert Miller" and eventually became Organization Secretary for the New York district. Mandel was elected to the organization's Central Committee at its Fifth Congress in 1927, and reelected as a "candidate member" at its sixth convention in March 1929. By the later 1930s he had become a dedicated anti-communist, and as "Benjamin Mandel," served as the research director for the Dies Committee from 1939 to 1945. He worked with the New York legislature during the Rapp-Courdert inquiry into the presence of Communist teachers in New York schools. In 1951 he became research director in the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, and stayed in that position until his retirement in 1967. Signer merits further research. Toned, especially at edges. Corners and edges lightly worn, torn, and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
