Tuskegee Institute, Alabama

Dear President Patterson:

I read with interest of your resignation from the presidency of Tuskegee Institute to become Director of the Phelps-Stokes Fund. Sincerest congratulations and best wishes.

In my opinion there is no person in the country more able for this new opportunity than you. I have always admired the generous spirit and broad vision that you have manifested both at Tuskegee and in your direction of the Negro College Fund.

With every good wish, I am

Very sincerely yours,
