Dr. F.D. Patterson, Tuskegee Institute, Tuskegee, Alabama. Dear Brother Patterson: As the national representatives of the old-est and most extensive organization of Negro college men in the world - the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity - we are sending to you, one of its distinguished members, this word of commendation and congratulation concerning your election as President of Tuskegee Institute. Our Fraternity including more than one hundred chapters distributed in the university and professional life of the Negro population, East, West, North and South, takes a distinct pleasure in honoring one of its sons, who in his scholastic life has attained the highest award which university circles can afford and has now attained a position of national significance and service in Negro education. Your election confirms our view that merit and service have their rewards, and we believe that your record of consistent application to the tasks of life which have faced you has been the basis upon which your elevation has been predicated. Your preparation for this future task has been both broad and thorough, and you bring to the office a wealth of experience and contacts. We are confident that Tuskegee's educational purpose is now upon secure foundations. Alpha Phi Alpha has real pride in the advance-ment of its sons to positions of distinction. Your attainment confirms our thesis that through such Let's Strengthen Our Foundation at Chicago--August 19 to 22, 1934
