RICHARD L. "DICK" NEUBERGER
Senator Neuberger responds to a letter regarding the teaching of foreign languages in public schools
Typed Letter signed: "Dick Neuberger", as U.S. Senator. 1p. 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1959 July 15, United States Senate letterhead. To: Mr. E. P. McKean-Smith, San Francisco, California. In full: "Thank you for your letter of July 10, 1959, regarding some of you recent experiences in Europe and the thoughts which they have stimulated with regard to government policy. In connection with your comments on the need for a more rigorous teaching of language in our schools, I think you will be interested in the enclosed [not included] reprint from the Congressional Record containing some of my wife's observations on American language proficiency following her recent stay in London as a delegate to the NATO "citizens' confer-ence". As she pointed out, "I shall carry back to my associates in Oregon's school systems the message to teach more foreign languages and to do it from the very first grades when other tongues can be picked up so much faster than in later years." Chuck Mitchelmore is indeed still with my office, and I fully share your high regard for his ability and talents. He joins me in sending all best wishes. With kind regards, I am Sincerely," Richard L. Neuberger (1912-1960) was born in the Portland, Oregon area, was educated at the University of Oregon and became the Northwest correspondent for the New York Times (1939-1954). He was elected to the State house of representatives (1941-1942), served in the US Army (1942-1945) - upon his return home, he was elected to the State senate (1949-1954) and the U.S. Senate (1955-1960) where he served as an outspoken liberal until his death at age 47. His wife, Maurine Neuberger (1907-2000) was elected to replace him serving from 1960-1967. In addition to his work with the New York Times, Neuberger published 5 books; An Army of the Aged (1936), Our Promised Land (1938), The Lewis and Clark Expedition (1951, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (1953) and Adventures in Politics: We Go to the Legislature (1954).
