Dear Mr. Deutsch:
Accept my belated thanks for your two reprints, "Psychiatry as State Medicine," and "The First U.S. Census of the Insane and its Use as Pro-Slavery Propaganda." I realized when talking with you the time we met at the Statler that you were interested in this phase of Medicine but I had no idea that you had gone into it quite so thoroughly. One can never tell what the limits of a good newspaper man's interests are. These articles are darn good medical writing.
We naturally have been interested in your recent raising of the question of the policies of the American College of Surgeons. As you may know, they have appointed a committee to re-evaluate their criteria for admission and out of it something may come. If so, I think you and your paper may feel that you have played a part of eradicating another unnecessary evil.
Please give my regards to your fiance -- or is it Mrs. Deutsch now? Also, accept my thanks both for the reprints and for your continued good work in your columns.
Sincerely yours,
Charles R. Drew, M.D.
Head
Department of Surgery
