Marian Anderson sends thank you letter for a sculpture
Typed Letter Signed: "Marian Anderson", 1p, 7¼x10½. Mariana Farm, Danbury, Connecticut, 1965 August 18. On her personal letterhead to Mrs. Eugene Dexter, Clintonville, Wisconsin. In full: "May we sincerely thank you for your very gracious letter of June 12, 1965, and we are most grateful to you, both for your kind words, and for the artistic sculpture that you so kindly sent to us. It will be an impressive addition to our collection. It must, indeed, be quite relaxing and rewarding to be doing this creative work. May we offer every good wish for your continued success. Again, our appreciation and with kind regards,". 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. Multiple mailing folds. Fine condition.
