Originals of this Material were Donated to National Archives November 2005, as requested, since it was stated that these letters had been written “on government time,”  hence they did not belong in private hands.

The typed summary on the following pages and all the 500 pages of typed letters were offered to the Government but since these papers were not “original” material they had no interest in them. This material was typed over a period of 30 years!

As letters are entered their index item will be highlighted.
