Typed letter signed: "Max Lerner" in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. Written on personal New York Post letterhead. New York City, New York. September 11, 1967. Addressed to Mrs. Stella K. Hershan of Forrest Hills, New York. In full: "Thank you for your good letter. I wish I could be of some help, but I am so far behind on my own book schedule that I don't dare take on another commitment. Good luck to you, and thank you for thinking of me. Sincerely". Max Lerner (1902-1992) was a Russian-born American journalist and educator, best known for his highly-syndicated, controversial column. His first column for the New York Post debut in 1949, and as a liberal for most of his career, he earned a place on the master list of Nixon political opponents; however, in his later years he was seen as something of a conservative, even backing the Reagan administration. His 1957 book, Life and Though in the United States Today, Lerner was a staunch opponent of discrimination against African Americans, but was a supporter of wartime internment of Japanese Americans, even backing the Civil Liberties Union resolution on the issue to "subordinate civil liberties to wartime considerations and political loyalties"; overall, he was a strong advocate of Roosevelt's New Deal. His book The Unfinished Country (1959) is a collection of over 200 of his daily columns over an entire decade, and his last book was Wrestling with the Angel (1990) which captures his long struggle with illness. Normal mailing folds. Binding holes in left margin, torn and frayed. Toned. Slightly soiled along edges and creases. Corners rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
