RICHARD TUCKER
He signs a warm 1969 typewritten letter to a teacher and students in Maine.
Typed Letter signed: "Richard Tucker", 1 page, 7¼x10½. Great Neck, N.Y., 1969 November 14. In personal letterhead to Marshall E. Bean, Saco, Maine. In full: "I was very much moved by your letter of October 20th with the enclosed Thanksgiving card and the crayon drawing. You are, indeed, engaged in a noble effort to bring some joy and understanding to your pupils. It thrills me to know that they would like my picture, an autographed copy of which is enclosed. And, under separate cover, I am sending them a recording, which, I hope, will bring them some moments of pleasure. [Items mentioned not included.] Please give 'your' children my warmest greetings with the thought that music will be a source of joy and comfort to them throughout their lives. Friendliest greetings to you and may you all have a very happy Thanksgiving. Sincerely". Richard Tucker (1913-1975) was a cantor before training for a career as an operatic tenor. He made his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1945, four years after his brother-in-law, the fellow opera great Jan Peerce. Tucker, considered by many the finest American-born and trained opera talent of his generation, starred in the first-ever full live opera production on TV (Aida, 1949). Tucker is the only person to have had his funeral conducted on the Metropolitan Opera stage. The Richard Tucker Music Foundation gives generous vocal music grants and scholarships. Fine condition.
