• TLS to Robert Richard Gros, 20 May 1948, tells Gris to call his office in New York for a meeting.
Letter on consignment with LDRB.
Robert Richard Gros was a publicist for Pacific Gas and Electric who doubled as a popular lecturer on current events, interviewing important world figures and then sharing his impressions with the public. In February 1943, he interviewed NAACP Executive Secretary Walter F. White (1893-1955) about the "growing race problem in America." In April, he followed up with a long letter to White, proposing that "the American Negro himself must bear a large share of the blame." In particular, he faulted the "Negro press" for "trying to find some race discrimination . . . in even the most innocuous incident."
