Abstract:

The collection consists of four letters by Dorothy Thompson, and one reply by Leigh White. Includes: to Leigh White, 11 April 1951, suggesting the need to form a committee of private American citizens to support the peoples and traditions of the Middle East; to Leigh White, 22 June 1951, concerning the formation of a committee for the Middle East; carbon typescript reply from Leigh White, 21 April 1951, supporting the formation of the committee and suggesting names.

Also, to actress Katharine Cornell, lamenting the English translation of the play Herod and Mariamne, and praising the original German version, suggesting Archie MacLeish or Edna Millay as an appropriate translator; to Katherine Cornell, encouraging her to read the play and discuss it with Austrian actor Fritz Kortner, who presumably had been offerred the part of Herod.
