Dear Dr. Drew:
I was thrilled to read in the Philadelphia Press that you have been awarded the 29th Spingarn Medal for 1943. It is a richly deserved tribute and I want to join your host of friends and admirers in extending sincerest congratulations.
With kindest regards.
Cordially yours,
Jacob Billikopf
P.S. I happen to be Chairman of our City-Wide Interracial Committee. One of our sub-committees submitted a report which you will find enclosed. I have been asked to send it with a covering letter to the National and local Red Cross. Before doing so, I would like to get your slant on the situation.
