Marian Anderson sends a letter of appreciation
Typed Letter signed: "Marian Anderson", 1p. 7x10½, personal letterhead. No place, 1955 February 3, to Mrs. Sheen. In full: "Thank you for your letter. We enjoyed doing the Cleveland concert very much and are so happy that it gave you pleasure. Please do know that I appreciate deeply your interest and your kind words. Most sincerely,". Marian Anderson (1897-1993), a contralto who sang both operas and spirituals, began her concert career in 1924. In 1939, the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to allow Anderson, a Black American, to perform in Washington, D.C.'s Constitution Hall. In response, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the D.A.R. and arranged for a concert at the Lincoln Memorial. Anderson, who debuted with New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1955, became a permanent member of the company. In 2005, she was honored on a 37-cent postage stamp. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
