NORMAN COUSINS
Norman Cousins signed this letter, typed on UCLA letterhead, in 1981 to thank comedienne Phyllis Diller for "your distinctive Christmas Card".
Typed Letter signed: "Love,/Norman" in blue ink. 1 page, 5½x8½, on letterhead of the Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dec. 4, 1981. Addressed to Phyllis Diller, Los Angeles, California. In full: "Dear Phyllis: Heartfelt thanks from Ellen and me for your distinctive Christmas Card. Your prayer is most apt. I am sorry you will not be able to join us on December 12. Just know that you are welcome, if your plans change. If our paths don't cross for the rest of this year, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Best, Norman Cousins". PHYLLIS DILLER, born Phyllis Ada Driver in Lima, Ohio in 1917, is best known for her outrageous appearance, zany outfits, distinctive laugh and a stand-up act that featured frequent references to her fictional husband "Fang" and zingers about her sex appeal and numerous plastic surgeries. NORMAN COUSINS (1915-1990) was editor of the Saturday Review for nearly forty years (1942-1978), transforming it from a struggling journal to an influential publication with 600,000 subscribers. He wrote dozens of books and hundreds of essays and editorials. President of the United World Federalists and co-founder of SANE (National Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy), Cousins crusaded tirelessly to reign in the nuclear arms race and for international peace and social justice. Cousins also believed strongly in the importance of a positive mental attitude in combating disease, a view he promoted in his best-selling book Anatomy of an Illness (1979). President Kennedy thanked Cousins publicly for his role in promoting the test ban treaty (1963), and Pope John XXIII awarded him his personal medallion. After retiring from Saturday Review, Cousins taught medical ethics at UCLA. Lightly creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
