Dear Josh,
I met in Mexico City my friend, the anthropologist Oscar Lewis (author of Children of Sanchez, and Five Families, which you have probably read). It turns out he is unhappy at Illinois and wants to find a place where he can build a group of fine cultural anthropologists. If we had such a place here, I would love to have him because he is one of the brightest guys I know. So I thought that Stanford may be interested in such an undertaking. Let me know if you think you can explore the possibility of Stanford being interested.
Best regards and happy New Year,
Salva
