Carver, George Washington

SIX PAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER (IN PENCIL) SIGNED BY GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER TO FREDERICK DOGULASS PATTERSON, PRESIDENT OF TUSKEGEE INSTITUTE March 14, 1939

(Tuskegee Institute, AL) 1939 Six sheets of irregularly cut paper, approx. 9 x 7" each (several of which were parts of brown paper envelopes), some toning (esp to page 2), staple holes at upper left corners, edge chipping to pp3-4 and 6, a letter or two missing from upper left corner of p6, a bit fragile, but SIGNED BY G.W. CARVER. Carver writes Tuskegee's President Frederick Douglass Patterson in response to a request for each department in the school to submit a ten-year-plan; Carver states that it would be difficult "...in fact, impossible for an Experimental Station (such as ours) to tell with any degree of accuracy just what demands will be made upon short, or no notice at all..."; however, he outlines various research that is being performed, including Laboratory Work, Bulletins, Infantile Paralysis, and Mycology. Finally, "...we graciously and thankfully accept the 'estimated level of Budget For Succeeding Years'..." Great content.
