one more carbon copy

Filed under: the process of archival processing, Uncategorized — susanwoodland @ 5:55 pm

Milton Weill was President of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies from 1951 to 1954. It appears that his secretary, identified here as sz, used the same sheet of yellow tissue paper as the carbon copy for two letters that differed only in addressee.  This letter was sent to two different prospective members of an advisory committee, Al (Alfred Bachrach) and Jack (J. S. Seidman).

We have two boxes of Milton Weill’s files from his years as President. The letter above is from his “New Committees” folder. We look forward to exploring more of his files and correspondence and learning about his contributions to FJP.
