September 20th., 1948.

Dear Miss Miller:

Pursuant to my conversation over the 'phone this afternoon re the [[underlined]] CONTEMPORARY ARTS ASSOCIATION, Houston, Texas [[/underlined]], I find the following notes made when that organization was brought to our attention a very short time ago.  Unfortunately I have meanwhile forgotten its source.

"New building.  Walter I. Farmer, Head.  Trustees:  Alvin S. Romansky, R.D. Straus, John de Menil, Robert Preusser, Edward L. Schiwetz, Dr. Richard Gonzales, Miss Nina Cullinan."

The above of course should be verified, and if in doing so you are able to obtain a street address would you in turn pass that along to me?

Yours very sincerely,
Mrs. T. D. Parker
Contemporary American Dept.
