JOSEPH ALSOP, JR
Joseph Alsop, Jr. sends a typed letter of thanks for the letter about his column.
Typed Letter Signed: "Joseph Alsop", 1p, 7¼x10½. Washington, D.C., 1967 February 1. On sheet imprinted with his name to Donald Koos, Esquire, Chicago, Illinois. In full: "Thank you so much for your exceedingly kind letter. There is no greater reward for hard work than to please a discerning reader. What you had to say about my column meant a great deal to me. I do wish I could comply with your request for an autographed photograph, but I simply do not have photographs for this purpose. Sincerely". With original typed, stamped mailing envelope. Joseph Alsop, Jr. (1910-1989) was a political journalist whose column, first called "The Capital Parade" (1937-1940, co-written with Robert E. Kintner) and later renamed "Matter of Fact" (from 1946) appeared three times a week in 300 U.S. newspapers. At his retirement, Alsop's column was America's longest-running one. Alsop called himself and his journalist brother, Stewart, "very square New Deal liberals", but his foreign policy views were more conservative. Stewart had co-written "Matter of Fact" with Joseph from 1946-1958, going on to write for the "Saturday Evening Post" and "Newsweek". Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition.
