PEARL S. BUCK. TLS: "Pearl S. Buck," 1p, 8½x11. New York, 1946 March 22. On stationery of The East and West Association (Pearl S. Buck, President), the winner of the 1938 Nobel Prize in Literature for her novels and 1932 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction for The Good Earth, writes to radio and early television personality Mary Margaret McBride, NBC, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York. In full: "Thank you so much again - how wonderful you are to help us like this in the Open Door! We are now considering going straight into Jamaica and tackling what is perhaps the hardest of all, the YMCA situations. The recent announcement by the YMCA against racial discrimination does not, alas, mean very much. The administration has often made these announcements but they do not effect the local YMCAs, who seem to take on the color of the community. I am writing at once to Dr. Hammett, and I look forward to seeing you on the program with Mr. Ojike, who by the way, is a most delightful and humorous person. He is a very vigorous and intelligent young man. Have you seen his book?" Slight surface creases, usual folds, one through the "P", "S", "B" and "k" of signature, else fine.
