RALPH J. BUNCHE
Ralph J. Bunche sends a typed letter of thanks for the Easter card.
Typed Letter signed: "Ralph J. Bunche" as United Nations Under Secretary General, 1p, 8½x11. New York, New York, 1971 April 7. On U.N. letterhead. To Bobby Colbert, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In full: "Thank you for sending to me the 'Happy Easter' card. I am glad to have it. I am still recovering from a severe illness but I am well enough to come to the office for a few hours each day. With best wishes, sincerely yours." Ralph J. Bunche, (1904-1971) who joined the United Nations in 1946, was chief U.N. mediator in the Middle East in 1948 and was awarded the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize for helping to negotiate a truce between the Arabs and Israelis the previous year. He served as Undersecretary-General for Special Political Affairs from 1958-1971, and was a principal U.N. negotiator in such trouble spots as the Suez Canal (1956), the Congo (1960), Yemen (1963) and Cyprus (1964). Bunche was awarded the NAACP's Spingarn Medal (1949) and the Medal of Freedom in 1963, the year he participated in the March on Washington. Shaky signature. Otherwise, the letter is in fine condition.
