WILLIAM LINDSAY WHITE
White signed this typed letter to Benjamin Mandel, the House Un-American Activities Committee's head of research, on Emporia Gazette stationery in 1967. This letter expressed White's regret that Mandel was retiring and thanked him for his service.
Typed letter signed "Bill" in blue ink. 1 page, 7x10¼, on stationery from The Emporia Gazette. Nov. 11, 1967. Addressed to Mr. Benjamin Mandel, The Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, The United States Senate, Washington, DC. In full: "Dear Ben: It was with sadness that I read that press release that you are retiring. Sadness, because all too few people realize what a wonderful job you have done for our country by your patient digging after important facts during all these decades. And you have been as brave as you have been diligent. All our love to you and Maggie. Sincerely, W. L. White WLW:wg". BENJAMIN MANDEL was a former Communist who issued Whittaker Chambers his Communist Party card. Chambers testified before HUAC in 1948 that Alger Hiss was a Communist while employed by the United States federal government. Hiss denied Chambers' allegations, which led to his conviction on perjury charges. WHITE (1900-1973, born in Emporia, Kansas) was an American journalist, author and war correspondent. The only son of newspaper editor William Allen White, he covered the Luftwaffe bombings of London and broadcast from Finland during the Soviet invasion of 1940. White won the Overseas Press Club Award for his war coverage. He then returned to Emporia and, after his father's death, took over The Emporia Gazette, where he established a reputation as a fiercely independent editor. White wrote 14 books, three of which - Journey for Margaret (1941), They Were Expendable (1941) and Lost Boundaries (1948) - were made into movies. White also served in the Kansas Legislature and supported the presidential campaign of Richard Nixon and Bob Dole's first United States Senate run. Lightly creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
