September 25th., 1958. Dear Mr. Lowry: Thank you for the opportunity extended through your letter of July 23rd., to nominate three artists for Ford Foundation grants. I am attaching date relating to my choices of Paul Zimmerman James Forsberg Kahlil Gibran. My evaluations are probably among the shortest you will receive because I do consider all three as outstanding, serious artists whose abilities are evident in their works. With appreciation, Yours very sincerely, Mrs. Theresa D. Parker Contemporary American Department. Ford Foundation Program for Artists, The Ford Foundation, 19th.
