Letter from Neale J. Pearson to MLK



A Ph.D. candidate from the University of Florida writes Dr. King to tell him about the political and social progress made by the university's Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) chapter. The writer tells Dr. King that the Chapter has invited various political figures to speak at an upcoming lecture series. He extends the invitation to Dr. King and Dr. Charles Anderson, while simultaneously seeking Dr. King's help in contacting Dr. Anderson. The student informs Dr. King that the organization can partially cover his travel and housing expenses, however it will not be able to cover his usual honorarium. Dr. King indicates via his handwritten notes that he cannot attend, however he recommends Dr. Anderson.
