Typed Letter Signed: "Paul Fannin". 1p. 8x10½, United States Senate letterhead. Washington, D.C., 1974 January 31. To:Dr. Herman Goldberg, Bureau of Equal Educational Opportunity, Washington, D.C. In full: "Dear Dr. Goldberg: In 1969, a report by the Special Subcommittee on Indian Education of the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare was issued entitled, 'Indian Education: A national Tragedy - A National Challenge.' As a part of this report, the Subcommittee set out numerous objectives and recommendations which they felt should be pursued in order to alleviate the many problems existing in Indian education. Four years have now passed since the report was published. I would like to know where we are today in rela-tion to these recommendations. In particular, I am interested in recommendation 9 which reads: 'The Civil Rights of Enforcement Office of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare should investigate discrimination against Indians in schools receiving Federal funds. Furthermore the Civil Rights Commission should investigate the general problem of discrimination against Indians.'In addition to the above, I would appreciate your opinions concerning any other areas that you feel are important within the purview of Indian education. Your assistance in compiling a review of these recom-mendations I appreciated. Sincerely," Paul Fannin (1907-2002) was first elected to public office in 1958 and served as the Republican Governor of Arizona from 1959-1965. Elected to the U.S. Senate (replacing Barry Goldwater when he ran for the Presidency) he served from 1965-1977. A hard-line conservative, he voted against the Equal Rights Amendment in 1972 and retired after serving two terms. Two sets of staple holes at top left corner. Paperclip crease at upper left. Normal mailing creases. "Received" stamp at lower right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
