Dr. F.D. Patterson
President, TUSKEGEE INSTITUTE
Tuskegee Institute, Alabama

Dear Dr. Patterson:     I learned with regret
                        through a telegram from
                        Mr. Charles H. Bynum and
                        press release of your
resignation as president of Tuskegee Institute, effective June 1st.
                        The telegram and press release noted that you would succeed Dr. Tobias as director of the Phelps-Stokes Fund.  No doubt in this position and as president of the United Negro College Fund you will be in a strategic position to do more for Negro colleges as a collective educational [[vertical line]] factor.  However, you have done so well at Tuskegee that your friends, I am sure, will view with no little sadness your departure from that responsibility.

                       With every good wish,

                       Yours sincerely,
          [[signature]] PB Young [[/signature]]
