hin pionooring in the philooophy of T and Ihou In catcGories 
which otill carry the halo of Kant'o cateßorios.

fricnd Eugen Rosenstock, hiraDclf a Jewi oh convert, had almost 
swccecded in convincing Rosenzweig of the spiritual nupromocy of 
the Christian religion. His final choice to continuo in the trad- 
ition of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob sct a pattern for all forthccm- 
ing Jonioh generations. Sinco tho oxamplc of Franz Roocnzireig, we 
have all had to pass through the oxporlonce of Jesus of Ilazareth 
as part ofl our spiritual horitago. Rosonzweig was as nuch a Ger- 
man as a Jcrrioh philosopher, as is demonstratod by both his 
thought and his language. It io moulded by Holderin and tho ycung 
Hegel, by Niotzsche and Schopenhauer rathor than by the Luther 
Biblo. Perhaps some of the perspectiven v/hich he mado articulato 
aa to Gootho'o rollgion, belong to the best interprotations of 
Goethe 's thought. 

Among the Zionist thinkors and scientists who wcro influenced 
by and made contributions to German learning, ^ Ernst, Simon in per- 
haps the most moving and illuminating man, Tfiere lo no ücrrran 
Christian who wrote interprotations as lucid conprchensivc and true 
of the most Cerman of Germans, the brothers Grimm, as did Ernst 
Simon. Throughout hia work, ho demonstratod the constructive unity 
of Jewish and German Learning and Concerns. 

The same Statement can be applied to Buber and Scholem. Both 
had been imbued with the spirit of Christian and German mysticicm 
before they discAvered Kabbala and Chassidisra and their rolevance 
for a Jewish philosophy od religion. 

In the field of poetry and literature, Kafka has demonstrated 
that a poet, a Jewish poet, whose main concern is the theological 
plight of the human being in the contemporary deaert of anonymlty 
and burocraciee, is the mouthpiece of a Suffering Mankind. The 
PasBio Humana is the leitmotiv of the great Jewish poets who are 
German w riters. 

Among the ideal Images of the constructive unity of Jewish 
philosophy and German criticism, there reroains the great figure of 
Walter Benjamin. His work on Goethe is perhaps his most outstand- 
ing achievement, since it is a critical appreciation of the great- 
est German poet . - \. i

ADDRESS REPLY TO 

'THE ATTORNEY GENERAL." 

AND REFER TO 

INITIALE AND NUMBER 



DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE 
WASHINGTON, D.C. 




Dr« Albert Salomon 

New School f or Social Research 

66 West 12th Street 

New York, New York 

Dear Friend: 



September 22, igi;3 
// / 




Thank you for the most pleasant evening we had together, and 
for the reminder that my time was onoe committed to worthier and 
better things» 

On Sunday aftemoon under a quiet tree I vmdertook to read 
your article on '^Nazism and the Gennan People". I experienoed the 
Sensation that Delacroix used to report in the presence of a 
partioularly apt painting - he oould only say Bravo, Qn refleotion 
of oourse I can say a great deal more. I think you have justly 
annihilated those intellectual simpletons who would make the 
esoterio pronounoements of professional thinkers the modus operandi 
of all social change# In that marvelously incisive paragraph (IV) 
you destroy all of those Philosophie wood piles which have sought 
to Show that the march of history is the xMiroh of the pedant's 
notionsj but I think you have been wisely chari table in showing 
precisely in what sense one can talk of the influences which the 
intellectual s* ideas may have upon social change# The important 
point is to emphasize their modest role* 

I am sure you would be inclined as I am to say that ths pursuit 
of philosophy is essentially a noetic enterprise, but that a dis- 
tinotion between philosophers as persona must be made* Some 
philosophers actually disengage themselves from all but their 
primary aim to seek the truth. Others again for unphilosophical 
reasons join social and politioal movements and use their philosophy 
as an after^thought to justify their decisions in the region of 
social action« 




\ 





I fall to see why w© must start with th© Hegelian hypothesic 
regarding the spread of the absolute mind in all spheres of lif© 
©Yen for m©thodologioal reasons* It would seem to m© that your own 
©xc©lleiit eooiology of th© ris© and influ©nc©8 of id©as n©©d8 no 
H©g©lian hypothosis. If we r©cast E©g©l in modern t©ms, w© would 
probably say that nothing can b© said to ©xist outsid© of a social 
context or outsid© of a social relationship, This you would agr©© 
is saying pr©oiou8 littlo. Such incisiv© analysis as you hav© mad© 
ar© obviously not d©p©nd©nt on such hoinili#8. 

I am not quite abl© to mak© out what you m©an by saying that 
th© philo8oph©r works in an int©ll©otual and spiritual spher© which 
is apart from th© social context, C©rtainly no aotivitios ar© 
outsid© of a social context; cortainly th© philosopher is not a - 
social. P©rhaps you m©an that th© philosopher has adopted Stoicism 
which as you recall Hegel pointed out in his "lÄihappy Consoiousness" 
to be a constant concem with th© social cont©xt -* if only with its 
oonstant n©gation. If you w©r© to say that th© philo8oph©r's problcms 
{even in th© rogion of m©taphy8ics) and their Solutions were not 
affected by the growth of established knowledge, I should tend to 
disagree with you« 

But these are very minor points of disagreement in what is 
essentially an eloquent appeal to humanitas. 

I also read with interest your charming portrait of that new 
member of the etemal Company of Stoics« 

Please ask Mrs. Salomon to write me conoeming the matter we 
spoke of. I hope to see you in the not too far future. 

I was both interested and flattered about The New School matter 
and I shall certainly think about it seriously. Vfith kindest regards* 

As ©Ter«

You know that I like a good flght and the t^sk you had ascribed to us was tbai 
of Pioneers who sometimes have to f lg t in the wilderness. 

But this is not a good f ight for principles of education and scientific re- 
search.ThiB seems to me aeither morally and intellectually nor legally fair. 

I would appreciate very much your good advise whether and what I shoi 
should answer. 

I know that an article of 2? 000 v/ords and t^ e restrictions •nposed on me 
cannot ac.?oir:plisV: t^^- p-rfeot prei:' entation t'iat T '^vl In mind.Nevertheless, 
I hope to have done some pionäering in the f ield of a sociological history 
of ideas, 

Fortunately,Riezler,Heiraann, Kaufmann, Hula read the paper before it was t\irned 
down.They oertainly oan give you any inforraation you would like to have. 
I do not want to bother you with the whole materlal. However I am glad to 
submit it to you, v/henever you like to. 



Sincerely yours 



Albert Salomon 






This attempt to find "reasons" for rejeoting my essay misrepresents and dls- 
regards the agreement we reached In our correspondenoe. 

I)In the flrst letter addressed to you he speaks of a Symposium of sociolo- 
gists 

2) He invited me to give my own Interpretation subjeot to the limitations of 

Space involved and, strangely enough,added that L^r. Becker would have nothing 

to do wlth the project. (11,20,40) 
3) he approved of my Interpretation when I sent him my Burckhardt article in 

Review of Politics as "admirable" 
4)he finally accepted the outline of the present essay as "exoellent" (4,26,40) 
5) he never objected to my comment of this outline that justif ies th9 enlarge- 

ment of the chapter on Marx and Hegel and the Impossibility to give as many 

pages to V/iese as to Weber. 

6) he never emphasized that the book was mainly destined to be read by elementa 
ry students.For this reason I assumed that the article was to be read by al 
sorts of Student s,mature people rather than youngsters.In any case,I made re 
hearsals with my students who were extremely fascinated and interested In 
this ,as they said,illuminating Präsentation. 

6) in the whole correspondenoe I do not find any suggestiono for giving biogra- 
phical notes and the gossip I blamed,with your approval,in my review of Be- 
cker-Barnes "From Lore to Science". 

8) After I had made clear my position in our correspondenoe and Barnes had 
approved of it in the most positive terms,! raust assume that either he did 
not read carefully my letterä (h€r4Ö0gear. me,1ror instance,to prepubllsh the 
material in Social Research what I never had suggested in the earlier letter 
^ or he f Q rg Q t „J:.a.>rer.ead>. our final agreemeat.Furthermore,his invitatlon of a 
prepublication in Social Research mjtkes it evident that he did not always 
destined this article for sociological babies. -* / r 

9; He wrote XII, 6,40 that there is no im ediate rush and that he iiii»^s»baY.e Jkjie 
article sometimes during I94l?fsuggested as deadline II, 15. That was agreed 

10) It seems stränge to me that the editor first finds the manuscript unintelli 
gible and nevertheless prepares it completely for the printer. ot.^^:^^^^,^,.^^^^^ 

II) I do not See any way in dealing with German sociology to escape a dsicussl'o

Dear Professor Salomon:- 

I have put in a large amount of time on your material 
on Germanic sociology. Indeed, I have almost literally "sweat blood" over it 
in the d^fort to see if I could not In some way make it suitable for my book. 
I regret greatly to aave to teil you that I find it entirely unsuitable for 
inclusion in a book on the history of sociological theory for beginning Stu- 
dent s of that subject. There are a number of reasons why I have had to come 
to this conclusion, which is more disastrous to me taa#i to you. 

In the first place, you entirely disregarded my 
editorial türections as to content, scope and treatment. In my letter of 
March 25,1940, I made it clear what would be needed for this book. I suggestec 
two or three pages as a brief introüuction to the character of Germanic soc- 
iology. But in your material 36 pages out of a total of 92 were taken up with 
introductory discussion which had little or no relation to general sociology ir 
Germany. This left little Space for a treatment of the German sociologists. 
Indeed, Schmalenbach,Troeltsch, Oppenheimer and von Wiese are only most hastily 
sketchöd.I made it clear that we needed a page or two on each author setting 
forth the main facts of his life, his position as a sociologist and his raain 
works. j^othing of this sort is contained in your material. Then, I emphasized 
the fact that the book ms for beginners and not for mature speciali^ts in soc- 
iological theory. Your letters to me made it clear that you understood this. 
Your material is so abstract and technical. that not one professor of sociology 
in ten could grasp ypur meaning, and students of sociology in our Colleges 
v;ould be utterly at sea. 

I was aware that there might be Some work to be done 
in editing the English, but this has not been a great p oblem. I could easily 
have taken care of this taäc in a couple of days of editing. But, though I have 
a reasonable comraand of sociology and philosophy^ you^aterial is so meta- 
phjrsical and abstract that I find whole pages which I am utterly unable to unde^l 
stand. It would be utterly unintelligible even to graduate students. And v/here 
I can fathom your meaning the material seems to be me^aphysics, epistemology 
and phenomenology rather than sociology. 

In Short, I feel that it would be completely disastrous 
to the book and to your leputation if I were to publish your material. It might 
be suitable for some philosophical Journal, such as The Journal of Philosophy, 
Psychology and Scientific Methods, but certainly not |'or a book on sociology 
or for a sociological Journal. 

For fear that I might misjudge your material, I aent 
samples of it(without mentioning the authorship) to the foreraost authority in 
the ünited States on sociological theory, and his reaction was even more ne- 
gative than mine. | 

The only part of your mattrial v/hich I could use would 
be that on Max Weber and I woula hctve to revise this very drastically in the 
way of simplification and greater concreteness. I will be glad to try it if 
you wish me to do so.

Dear Dr. Salomon:-- 

Many thanks for your admirable 
article on Burckhardt» 




II* you can get your Material on 
the üermanic sociologists to me by February 15th I 
think I can manage all right. The rast of the 
book will be in before that time and I will get 
it all edited by the time your contribution arrive; 
But the publisher will get after me if I do not 
have the whole manu Script in his hands by March 
first. 

In the matter of footnotes I 
shall use the following style: 

Ludv/ig Stein, Die soziale Frage im Lichte d^ ^ 
Philosophie ! Stuttgart^ Enkejl92.^) . 

Ludwig Stein, "Die Träger, der Autotitat," 
in Archiv für Kech ts-und-^V^^rtschaftsphilosophie , 
October, 1907, pp. 44-65. 

If you use this style there will 
be less chance of errors entering into the editing 
of your footnotes. The footnotes of each chapter 
will be numbered consecutively 1,2,3,4,5, etc. 
Your materlal will probably make two or three 
chapters, so I will leave the chapter divisions to 
Jour judgment.

of great personal, professional and editorial regret 
that I could not use your material, Aside from my 
high personal regarc; for you, the Situation has been 
of great personal inconvenience to me in the matter 
of finding Substitute material. I shall succeed, 
but it will delay the book for some months. If I 
could have seen any way to adapt your material to

lot to leäTirig out a good treatment of 
von Wiese. He is of partioular iraportanoe

I wonder if one of your oolleagues 
would be willing to write a 15-20 page 
treatment of Ratzenhofer whioh I oould use 
quite independent of your raaterial. 

The hundred pages I mentioned would 
be tr'pewritten pages of about 260 words to 

the pa,^e. 

Perhaps I should emphasize the faot 
that the book will be read by elementary 
students of Sooiology. amon^' others, so we

Dear Dr. Barnes, 

Thank you ever so much for your sympathy and your 
kind words.Unfortunately,my recovery is going on very slowly;that is the 
son why I did not write you earlier. 

Enclosed you will find aix pages wbich contain a first draft of an outlii 
I certainly will attempt to not go beycnd one hundred and seven pages 
Would you be kind enough to teil nie whether these are printed or typewri' 
pages? 

I hope Vary much that you wont object to my suggestions v/l ich are contain< 
in theses p^ges^May I say one word for their justification. 
I cannot include Ratzenhof er, he is quite isolated and v/ithout any value fj 
the development of Qerman sociological thought.Logically and object ively 
would integrate him into t-e chapter dealing with ecological thought. 

'oecondjl cannot agree with your idsa to devote the s ame / ^ijp4tfi of pages to^ 
Wiese l.ike^3immel or /eber.Personally , I would not hesitate to neglect h 
even completely.l.':y main concem regarding intellectual responsibility 
the preservw;bion of a sound tradition of th e highest i ntellectual stand] 

Vhlch may be of value for the progress of sociological thought in USA. 

J[ am def initely of the opinion t':at '//lese is without any value. The refore 
if you do not mind, I had no objection to irop him entirely. 
If I give a careful analysis of the position of Hegel and '^arx in the firs' 
chapter,! would >^ave the opportunlty to be briefer in the chapter An Oppenj 

heimer. 

My Simmel interpretation will give me much work.Hov/ever it is hlghly necei 

ry to revise the very imperfeot bock ^ opykman and to sugpBSt a new readi] 

of Bimmel himself. 

I would appreciate it very mikch, if you like the idea to include the contri- 

butions by Burckhardt and Dilthey.They are much raore important than many- oi 

the labelled sociologists* 

The outlines are not perf ect.However I hope that you get an idea if the waj 

I would like to proceed», 

Thank you for your inteif^st .

Dear Professor Salomon:-

me to have them handled hy so competent an authority. 

h^-o-«» 4« ^4^A A 4.v^ ,- l^ fairness to you I should let you know what we

of sociological thought, with relatively llttle attention to the m7tt^\e.

Jf^J w?^®^ ^?'*V^'^ ^® Siyen to Ratzenhofer, Tönnies, Simmel, Oppe^eimeJ 
and von Wiese, giving roughly about 15 pages to each. As you say, the ^ 
book is for students rather than scholars and the main task will be to 
State and epltomize the major theoretical contributions of each of these i 
men to sociology -indicate what their " System« is and why it is significand 
All esoterlc details can be ignored. *-tB"J-i. xt-dniij 



Then, in the 
Just a running commentary, a sort of

^ j.. . ., ^^ Blnce you will not have more than two pages for 

7 ? these, on the average, you can do no more than indicate their ' 
main books and their approach to sociological questions. But this will 
set American students on the right track. 

^ ^ ^ I realize that some of these later writers may be 
more important in some ways than the five I have specified for more detail- 
ed treatment, bjit the plan that the publlshers have in mind for this volume 
makes it necessary that we handle the German sociologlsts in this manner. 
I hope that I may later be associated with an enterprise which will enable 
you to treat adequately those whom we must treat so scantily here. 

Cordially yours, 

P.S. '^'M^yc^Out,^ 

You may miss Gumplowicz and Spann. I shall treat Gumplowicz in 
another section of the book, and I have a manuscript on Spann in band.

Dear Johnson: - 

The University of Oklahoma Press has 
been negotiating with rae relative to a syT^posium 
on sociologists. If I go ahead with it 1 shall 
need about 100 pages of manuscript on some leading 
üermanic systematlc sociologists -say Katzenhofer, 
Tönnies, Simmel, Oppenheimer, von Wiese and :^lax 
Weber. I am v;ondering if anybody in the university 
in Exile would be interested in such an exposition? 
There would not be much money in it, though the writ' 
er would get his propoBtionate share of the royalty, 
but it would carry considerable prestige. It woula 
be no great task for a man familiär with üerman soc-

Dear Professor Balomon:- 







I was very sorry indeed to learn from Mrs, 
Salomon that you have been ill. You have my sincere sympathy. I thoughl 
I would wait a few days before writing you in the hope that your health 
might be much improved« 

loxx Outline Interests me very much. I think I 
can work out a compromlse which my publishers will accept# I would sug- 
gest the following: 

!• IntroductAon of 2 pages, just as in your Outline. 

II. Toennies and bchmalenbach, 17 pages, as in your Outline* 

III« Simmel, 15 pages. 

IV. Max Weber, 15 pages and Troeltsch,5 pages. 

V. Von ¥fi^se,15 pages. 

VI. Oppenheimer, especially his soclological System, 10-12 pages. 

VII. Ratzenhof er, 12-15 pages. Katzenhof er can be treated right 
after your jjntroduction if you wish. ör he can be set apart 
as a representative of Austrian sociology. 

öcheler would not be appropriate for the purposes of this book, but 
I hope I shall have a book soon in which I can have you write up all 
the other üermanic sociologists you mention. I already have had one 
suggested which would call for a treatment of Uerman psychologlcal 
sociology and social psychology. 

If this plan which I have suggested above meets with your approval 
you may feel free to go to work on the material as soon as you feel 
able. I shall be away on the Pacific Coast for about three weeks but 
so thorough a master of the field as you are will not need any advice 
from an editor. 

Please accept my very best wishes for a füll and speedy recovery. 

üordially yours, 

P.S. 

If you have any high regard for Franz Carl Müller-Lyer you could 
add 5-7 pages on his soclological work and theories.

Dear Salomon: 

7/e are very sorry indeed to learn that you have been 
ill and that your contributions will aocordingly 
be delayed. 

This i8 not so bad as it seems, however, for a change 
in our Publishing plans has led to arrangements for 
two volumes, one to appear under the auspices of 
D. Apple ton-Century, and the other under" the Univer- 
sity of Oklahoma Press* It is in the latter that 
your i.'rork will find its most sui table place, and 
the deadline for this can hardly be set earlier 
than February 1^ If, consequently, you can promise 
to deliver it at the date mentioned, you will not 
embarrass us at all» 

Hoping that this relieves you of any anxiety, I 
remain, 

Sincerely yours,

Dear Salomon: 

Your letter relieves my mind considerably; l had begun 
to fear that v/e could not count on you even by Januarv 1, 
I should say that you will probably need a maximum of" 
6,000 words for Max y.'eberi ^,000 for Scheler (l shall 
soon send you the manuscript dealing ;vith Scheler tg poci- 

ology of Knowled g e ) . We had agreed on SiiriTuel as your 

third contribution, had we not? Your letter to whlch T 
replied on June 15w runs to that effect. In view of the 
fact that Spykman'? book is so generally available, to 
say nothing of the further fact that Slnmiel is conöider- 
ably outmoded, I am inclined to say that we need not 
devote more than 3,000 words to him. If my proportional 
estimatesdoe:^ not agree with yours, please inform me and 
we will revise them. 

It may seem that I am givfng undue süace to Max Weber in- 
asmuch as Parsons has dealt with him^ at length in his 
recent book, but my experience with students has been 
that they do not understand Parsons even when they can 
muster enough endurance to read him. At any rate, this 
IS my best judgment at present. 

I am glad you are enjoying your vacation. New Hampshire 
is very pleasant during the summer, but I have not found 
V/iscor.sin at all irksome~in fact, one could hardly ask 
for better weather anywhere at this altitude. 



Sincerely yours.

Dear Salomon: 

Many thanks for your letter of Deceraber 26 and the 
greetings of the season it contained. I also wish 
to express my appreciation of your thoup:htfulnegs 
in suggesting possibllities for those papers that 
you were unable to complete, 

I think I shsll not ask Shils to do anything; he 
hasseveral promlses now, I know, that he has not 
been able to fulfill within time limlts set, so I 
had better not add to his obligations. I shall 
most certainly write to Almond in the near future, 
Can you let me have his address? 

I fancy that the next meeting of the Society will 
be in New York, in which case we will have an oppor- 
tunity to get together and talk things over. I 
am looking forward with interest to your review 
of the B+B in Social Research , When does it appear?

Dear Salomon: 

Our Space In the forthcomlng book is limited, and 
I should strongly counsel you to hold your con- 
tributions to a sum total of fifty pages in the 
format of the Social Thought From Lore to Science 
7/hich has Just appeared. This is not much, I ^ 
know, but if the book is to have any sale, it 
must be kept to as small a size as possible. Even 
as it is, I may be compelled to do some editorial 
condensation. I am inclined to think that I 
can give you until July ly for the final type- 
script of your chapters, but not beyond that time. 
I hope this does not crowd you unduly»

New York City 

Dear Salomon: 

I was very glad indeed to get your best regards, both 
through your letter and through Professor G-oldenweiser^ 
who assures me he enjoyed his meeting with you very 
much, You astound and delight me with the news that 
you are now working on an analysis of the Sophist s, for 
in 192g I wrote a doctoral disertation that incorporated 
such an analysis as a fundamental pert, I am applying 
for a research grant for the Coming yeer which I hope 
will give me an assistant who is better equipped from 
the philological side than I am. If the project goes 
through, I shall have my manuscript ready for publica- 
tion by the middle of 1939» ^o you have anytning now 
written on the topic? I should like very much to get 
some idea of what you are doing and also to see what 
you include in your bibliography. I shall be glad to 
reciprocate, in case you are interested, as I have a 
carbon copy of my old ms* 

Turning now to the contemporary social theory volume: 

(1) For questions of usage and style, adhere to Fowler*s 
Modern English Usa^e and The University of Chicago Style 
Book; 

(2) For footnote practice, bibliographical references 
and the like, use the forthcoming Barnes and Becker 
Social Thoup^ht From Lore to Science as your guide. (Please 
note, however, that footnotes will appear at the bottom 

of the page rather than at the end of the book). 



posslbly can, for I shall other- 



(3) Be as brlef as you 

wise have to wield the blue pencil ruthlessly; 

(^) Remember that you are wrlting for a relatively unsoph- 
Istlcated audience, and that illustjrations, etc., that are 



not likely to find a ready resoonse^J^^the rank and 
of advanced students should be omltted. 



ftle 




I am a Llttle disturbed hy your proposal to emphaslze the 
philoiogjLcal implicetions of the sociological achievements 
of Slmel, Scheler and the others with whom you are deellng. 
The amount of undiluted philosophy that the ordln?^ry 
American can absorb is very slight indeed, One of Uie 
surest ways to damn a social thinker is to bring ^ii^^hil- 
osophical achievements into too great prominence. Ix) be 
sure, I know that many men cannot be understood at all 
unless you understand their basic philosophy, but try to 
teil that to the ordinary American sociologistl It seems 
to me the most we can hooe to do is to give due recogni- 
tion to the philosophical aspects of the work of these men} 
we certainly dare not emphasize them. Moreover, I feel 
that there should be considerable stress on v/hatever empir^c^t) 
■ oolo trends appear, It should not be so strong as to fals- 
ify the picture, but it should be strong enough so that 
the fact-worshipping American can feel the bottom ^assur ed: , 

I hope this counsel of minft. will not prove too discouraging. 
I know that you will feel that I am making altogether too 
great concessions to the reigning ideology. Our problem, 
it seems to me, is to proceed gradually rather than to plunge 
in media s res at once*

comprehension and,on the ether hand,liy the sincere aodesty 
so seldoa t# be found witlf, a nan ef such a wide scope of Icnowledge 
and leasning. 

I haye sent^ef course,the Weber article te Dr. Lee Strauss ef 

'•Secial Research« and asked at the same tiae whether he weuld 

be Interested in ay writing an essay on the Positien of the Vati- 

can in the Present Crisis. You imagine how happy I was te be al- 

lowed to mention your naae in this context. 

Did you speak to ITrs.Brensky on my behalf? Ifrwould indeed be rery 

helpful fer ae to get a regulär position with a fixed saiary at 

the editorial staff of t4% Protestant^ 

I also suppose that you were kind enough to write to Dr,Kris,as 

you friendly intended to do,for I think this will be the right 

aoaent *ow to get in toueh with that exwellent aan with respect 

to his new project.But I won*t do it only after he has already 

receired your notiee although I was recommended to hia by Dr. 

Johnson hiaself, 

Please let ae kaow what you ^hink about my paper on "Some Pacts 

Of Social Psychology That Endanger Enduring Peace ». It will be

Many thanks fcr letting me see a copy of the C-erman edition of 
your DeTocqueville "bock. 

As I explained to Dr. Ascoli , we have already entmsted the 
editorship of cur DeTocqueville vclume to Mr. Max Lerner at 
Mlliams College. Have I your permission to send ycur "book to 
Lerner to ask him whether he can rnake use of it? Any arrange- 
ment that could he worked out would have to he with his consent, 
of course, since we already have a contract with him, hut I 
have always fo^md him to he a very reasonahle man and mayhe we 
can find a way to include you in the uroject. 

I won't send the hook on to Lerner until I hear from you again.

October 10, 1947 



Mr. Albert Salomon 

New School for Social Research 

66 V^^est 12th Street 

New York City 

Dear Mr. Salomon: 

We read your essay on Karl Mannheim in the 
last issue of Social Research with great interest. 
Your discussion of Karl Mannheim suggests to us 
the possibility that you might be interested in 
writing an article for our "Study of Man" depart- 
ment on recent trends in the sociology of religion. 

We have in mind a discussion of the attempts 
by such people as Mannheim, Cassirer, Malinowski, 
Talcott Parsons and others, to provide a "place" 
in sociology for religion, and the significance and 
viability of their attempts. 

I hope you are acquainted with the scheme of 
the "Study of Man" department: in it we attempt 
to present for the layman in non-technical language 
discussions of recent important developments in the 
social Sciences. We would pay $150 for an acceptable 
article of the sort we described. The length of our 
articles usually runs about 4,500 to 6,000 words. 

Let me hear from you soon about this matter. 

Sincerely yours, 

Nathan Glazer

Dear rrüi'essor Salomon: 



ivir. Blazer and I have read your article v/ith great care 
and interest, and have found it extremely provocative; but we 
feel strcn^^ly that it needs conslderable work before it will 
be ready Tor ^.ublication. Cxenerally spea>:ln:, it is too dense 
and elliptical; it hurries across subtle and controversial 

^;oints in such a way as to bewilder the intelligent reader 

to say nothin-T ol* most academicians. 



Tlie 
pages, is 
not quite 
scientili 
the end-p 
cilable? 
of sociol 
that t his 
have to d 
the reade 



introducticn on sociology, covering the first twc 
extremely difficult to follow and its relevance is 
clear. . Just wi.at is the relationship between 

c^ sociology and philosoyhical anthropologyV Is one 

oint of the other or are they contrary and irrecon- 
The leap from ^'scientific sociology" to "the religion 

ogy is made too swiftly to comprehend, If you feel 
section is necessary for your argument, you will 

evelop it a little more patiently and with an eye to 

r's ability to grasp t he point. 



The discussion from the bottom of Page 2 through Pa-e 6 
presupposes a spe Cialis tfe knowle dge of the writers you refer 
to. It is by no means clear what point you are makinr with 
regard to IXirkheim. Phrases like ^»the synbo^ic character of 
the sacred , "the spiritual," and the "collecTive consciousness" 
have to be made concreto either throu.^h example or elaboration. 
Also, the connection you try to make between Durkheim and 
Mannheim does not come across. Neither does the section on 
Weber and Troeltsch — it is a^ittle too much to ass ^me that 
our readers are intimate with ^l'^ZVü and concepts cl^ botr of 
these rather difficult thinkers. In general, we feel stronFly 
that all the writers ana books refered to require more reüortinp 
and comment than you have glven them. *

T::.irdly, we feel sure that youp description oi' a different 
form of "sociology of religion** from Fa^e 7 on, requires ccn- 
siderable strengtriening. It dcesn»t seem to us that you have 
completely established your argument for the supTfiority Tora 
non-socio*^i|jical System of relio-ion. For exam^.le, the work of 
Gottfried Arroid, as you describe it, does not^s eem to say more 
than the sociologists of religion have said, and indeed, he 
seems rather close to "eher. 



We have indicated in a most general way the aspects of 
ycur article that v/e find difficult ana confusing. V«e feel 
that another draft may well clear up these difficulties and 
and hi,;::hlight the r eal contributi ons your article has to make. 
If anything in t his letter is obscure or you wisn to discuss 
the article further wlth us before startin'; another draft of 
it , please do not hesitate to call.

Dear Dr. Salomon: 



I received your article today, and read it with much 
interest, It is, if I roight say so, truly a vast improve-

editing on our part, but we are quite used to that. 

I hope to be able to send the edited version to you 
for your approval some time within the next ten days. 

I Vv^ould like to thank you for the issue of Social 
Research with your article v;hich arrived last week. I have 
not yet had the oprortunity to read it es we have been very

Dr. Albert aalomon 
465 West üid Avenue 
New York City 

Dear Dr. Salomon: 

Please forcine me for not havlng been in 
touch with you. In part, however, it was not 
my fault: I was having yonr article read by rav 
colleagues, discussinc it with them, etc. 

wv,.n ^IJ ^®??*öd, sorne difficulties have arisaa. 
While they all agree with me that it is a verT 
provocative and challenging article, they do 

Tri i^S."^?^ "f H' ^^ "^ Pi-esent form, roady 
for publication in Conuientarv. They seem to think 
tnat it is too internally directed within the 
academic .rovinces, and that for most of our readers , 

it would be an explosion without apparent cause 
or consequence. (I happen to disagree with them -- 
• 4^i? article should be published as is — but 

m this case, I am but a protesting minority.) 

UnfoBtunately (for this occasion, an/(yway) , I am 
not a sociologist, and the kind of editing I caA do 
on such an article is limited. But Nathan Glazer 
will retiirn to our staff at the beglnning of next 
weök and I will turn it over to hlm, and ^ive him 
the task of making it acceptable to our lay editors. 
(He read the early version, and found it interestin-. ) 
He will set in touch with you in the near f^ature. 



It's 



all very di scouraging, I know. However, 



If it s any consolation, it's not uncom.raon for this 
to happen to us. Only yesterday I submitted m^ fifth 
Version of an article on the Nazis to my collea^^ 
ed4o^'Y.r?^''*^=^ rejected an article by the m^aging

The fullnesa of a life is startling and overwhelming when it 
passes in a catastropMc lightning-flash. Last Sunday afteimoon I talked 
with Dr. Lederer. 'Phe quiet power and the charm of his Personality were 
immediately there in our easy and refreshing conversation. In euch a mo- 
ment we are, as it were, in an oncoming wave of a man's living, behind which 
— though largely unobserved — is the weight of his füll life, The concentrated 
r4velation of this life tliat attends a destructive lightning-flash is an awe- 
some thing — when suddenly all the ranges of a man^s career lie before us 
silently. 

The fullness of Dr. Lederer's career, the diversity and vitality of his 
interests, the quality of his accomplishrnents — all have newly impressed me in 
this awesome way in the last few days. It is this sense of the remarkable 
scope and deep beneficence of his busy life that makes me refrain, howeyer, 
from saying anything directly about what he did and what he meant to so many 
associates in different nations. My own association with Dr. Lederer was not 
that of any long professional collaboration, but one that consisted of friend- 
ly relations between our homes. Perhaps by this circuiastance I may in small 
measure represent some of that Ainerican Company who were privileged to be 
forming personal ties with Dr. Lederer and his family. I wish only to give 
some testimony to the sense of worth which we feit in having hin among us, to 
our holding of him in delighted affection and esteem. 

üfhe charm of some characters cominunicates itself very readily, and this 
was obviously true of Dr. Lederer. But it is true besides that in certain 
instances a deeper bond, based on the distinctive spiritual appeal which a 
person makes to one, is discernible from a few traces. I remember that at 
the close of my first Visit to his home Dr. Lederer pointed to seyeral grace- 



/ 



-E- 



( ^ 



ful eighteenth. Century prints of buildings and parks that hung in the hall- 
way, and voiced his special fondness for that period in the development of 
western humanity. It was a confirmation of all we had experienced during the 
evening— an appropriate symbol of a clear sun-lit quality of mind and of a 
native original gaiety, alike always mobile and serene. The depth and grace 
of his enthusiasm for play were a delicious discovery that knew no end. His 
was a cheerfulness grounded beyond optimism; its narmth and light reinained 
pervasive through tragic circumstances, 

My conversations with Dr. Lederer wsre not such as lad me to associate 
specific philosophical concepts with him. Yet he leaTes with me the impression 
of a very def inite attitude that loved both spontaneity and proportion as funda- 
mental to sustaining the great human value». In this regard I find that I can 
not disassociate from him certain features of a general intellectual orienta- 
tion, of a fundamental discipline of mind, that in the most genuine sense seemed 
to constitute his peiTasive working philosophy, if one wishes to call it so. 
An unforced, ample senso of order and an ever fresh, untrammelled probing for 
finer connections and relatlons to be di seemed within that order — such were 
the two constituents of his mental discipline as I see it. He had a special 
interest and sensitiveness for understanding the delicate connections and re- 
lations of a psychological kind that are involved in huinan spontaneity. I do 
not know just how he would have preferred to formulate it, but this conviction 
of an inclusive order of life and the aearch for the subtler, hidden inter- 



connections involved in ita appearances seem to characterize his work— as for 
instance, his recent uniquely revealing study of Japan. To the pursuit of 
freedom, therefore, he brought this further searching for the significant and 
dynamic connections necessary to sustain an order of life that meant both 
spontaneity and proportion in the relations of man. 

It seem» to me that no other spirit or attitude than this one so ingrained 



-3- 



in Dr. Lederer 's finely teiiperod personality could more fortunately guide and 
synibolize the larger needs and opportunlties of the new work to which he came 
in this country: to inaugurate a collaboration of exiled and of American 
scholars in a spirit and atmosphere of freedom. How could our life here, and 
in the World at large, be better served than by deep attachment to an inclusive 
Order of humanity combined with a discriminating sympathy for the many yarious 
and intimate sources of vitality and spontaneity within every part? On my last 
Visit I found Dr. Lederer keenly exploring a number of American novels. In 
Proportion as the breaks in life's continuity are sudden, the more firmly inust 



we 



walk in the large abid.lng ways that such rare and well-beloved 



coinpanions suggest to vlb.

Maroh 14, 1947 





Dear Professor Salomon: 

In accordance witb. our regulär custom, formal 
invitations to the Conference will be mailed later, 
probably the second week in May. 

At that time we plan to list the suhjects to 
be oonsidered and the authors who have promised pa- 
pers v/hich will serve as the basis of our disoussion. 
However, division of the program into sessions, like 
the listing of chairmen, will be announced later, 
probably early in July. This will allow the program 
committee to develop the tentative program after study 
of the papers reoeived in June. Detailed Information 
regarding the Conference will be mailed, as usual, a 
few weeks before the September meetings, which are to 
be held at the building of the American Philosophioal 
Society, Independence Square, Philadelphia. 

I am writing now to remind you that we are defi- 
nitely counting on a paper from you, and hope that it 
will be at the Conference office by\ June first, That 
will ensure maximum advance commenti and will al^onelp 
US to prepare the tentative pr^raai itself .

Dear irrofessor oaloT^ionr 

This is to recoramend Dr. Pritz Kaufmann for a professorship in 
the Graduate racultv of tne ;\ew School for .Social ^esearch. 

Dr. Kaufmann came to Cleveland warrnlv cotTunended bv friends wnose 

.]ud/2:ment i trust, arnong txiem one who had studied under him at 

Freiburp;. ne was in mv home for three aavs , and mv v/ife and 

tnree cnildren as well as i became his fast friends. 

On the secona aav of his stav with us Dv . Kaufmann read a paper 
on the pnilosophy of historv to an open meeting of mv graduate 
serr^inar, to which i invited otner students ana memDers of our 
facultv. 1 was very mucn impressea bv tne wav in v/nicn, without 
anv displav of eruaition or of learnen Jargon, he led his audience 
earnestlv but easil^^ into some of tne profoundest problems and 
speculations of philosophy. At the end he met a battery of search- 
ing Questions with 'admirable tact and s^ill and vet with perfect 
candor. At an inforraal gatnering at mv home in tne evening , the 
discussion v/as continuea and extenaea to the international problems 
of tne aav, and to tne other fields of philosopnv. 

From his lecture, from tnose of his writings which 1 have read, 
from. his conduct in these meetings, from mv personal aoauaintance 
with him ana from what otners who know him better have said to me, 
1 am persuaded that he is a m.an of the f inest character, high 
scholarlv attainments and creative abilitv: and that ne is an ideal 
representative of Gernan thougnt at its best: --earnestness , inaustrv, 
depth, insignt, Einfühlung:, speculative courage: with a minimum of 
tne pedantrv ana tne impenetrable .Jargon wnich so often accompanv 
tnese otner gualities. 

1 do not know how much the New School depends unon or values 
friendlv relations with other educational institutions throughout 
the countrv. i am impressed dv the fact, of which 1 am as^mred bv 
m.v corresnondents at narvard, Chicago, Oberlin, hopkins , and iMorth 
Carolina, that wherever ne nas gone in tnis oountrv ne has quicklv 
establisned warm, friendships, based on mutual respect as wel]. as 
personal attraction, wnicn .^ive every sign of being permanent.

My dear Dr. Salomon: 

I f eel truly humbled by your much too generous 
letter, and by your kindness in sending me your arti- 
cles on Tocquevilie and Burckhardt. If I have given 
you ever so little encouragement, I feel happy. It 
is little enough to share in that way the common fate 
of our colleagues, 

I am delighted that you are keeping up with your 
writing, and I was especially interested and illuminated 
by your article on TocCiUeville . 

Ever yours, 





Dr. Albert Salomon

Sehr geehrter Herr Professor, 
Ich flanke Ihnen sehr für Ihre freundliche Einladung, an dem Annual Meeting 
der Polltioal Sclenoo Aaaociutlon teil zunehmen. "e sonders dankbar bin ich für 
den Vorschlag über Dilthey sprechen zu können, den ich hier durch ein elnfUhr- 
endes Buch bekannt zu machen hoffe. Ich glaube, daiS sein Werk hier ein viel-5 
leicht gröiSeres Interesse und Verständnis finden wird als in Deut3ohland,weil 
die groiEe Tradition des amerikanls ohen Pragmatismus für nehr viele Probleme 
im ,/erke Diltheys breiter sein dürfte als die vorsohiedenen geistigen Bewegun 
sengen bei uns. Jarf ich Sie nur noch bitten, den GegenstandinelneB Vortrages 
mir etwas scharfer zu präzisieren. Wenn ich Ihre Formulierung richtig inter- 
pretiere, so soll ich sprechon.über Diltheys Stellung zur Oesohichte und die 
Bedeutung seines radikalen Zuendedenkens der Historie für die Oeisteswlssei^. 
Schäften. PUr die **etohichtswi8senschaft selbst sind seine Ausführungen wohl 
nicht so belangreich. 

Dorf ich nir noch die Frage erlatiben,ob die Polltical Science Asoocia- 
tion die Äelsekoston vergütet? 

Mit bestem QruiS 

Ihr ergebener

to apply for a aoholarshipplaoe for Frank. I enolose »y oorrespon- 
dence witk the sohool to April 24,After tke prooeding lettorg I 
tooK for ojranted that the letter of April 24th meant a sokolar- 
£;hip place. In August I reoeiveci a printoc sheet to tke parents of 
Horaoe Hann students announoing the raiae in tuition fron 6 to 
700 doilars.I took It as a routine let.i.er mailed by the offiee to 
all tbe parents.However I wrote Dr Tillinghast tkat I was alarmed ♦ 
I repeated my offer that I had maue orally that 1 would gladly 
teaok the seuiors Introduution to Sooiology or History of Ideaa 
iÄ Order to oonpensate for the tuition whieh I oould not afford. 
At the end of the letter I Implored kim to let me ioaow iB3»edlately

Joan of Are.I reoeired aleetter by f^x Van Sant sinply statin^ tkat

I reeeiveü a routine sheet telling at wkat date tke boys were to

Dear Mr. Salomon: 

You will pardon my delayed ariswer to your letter» 
I was expectin^; to get the proofs, whlch I am sending 
you in the same mail. 

I hope that you agree with the corrections ir.ade by 
Mr. O'Malley according to your wishes. I would llke It 
especially If you could make the slight changes which I 
proposed to you In my flrst letter. Especially on page 
17 I would like you to put a change in the expression 
"dogmatism of theology", so that there may be no possible 
mi sunder st an ding. 

Could you indicate also in jour first remarks, wi.ich 
French edition of the work of Tocqueville you are using. 

I am very -lad to have the privilege of Publishing 
your article in the next issue. It is a very fine piece 
of work. 

If I can help you in your new work, I shall be very 
happy to do so. I would be particularly interested in 
an article of yours on Burckhardt. 



Sincerely yours.

Monsieur et eher Collegue, 

Sur le conseil de Waldemar Guriant je viens joindre mon te- 
moignage au sien en faveur de mon ami Alfred Mendizabal« 
Ce grand banni m^rite la Sympathie de tous les justes.Profes- 
seur ä l'Universite d*Oviedo>Mendizabal fut de ceux qui ont 
cru que la victoire de la justice et de la paiXfen Espagne, 
ne pouvait etre assuree que par une mediat ion.Refugie a Paris 
des le debut de la guerre civile^il s'y "est depense en vain, 
comme president du Comite espagnol pour la Mediation, pour une 
paix de pardon reciproque et dMndependance espagnole.ll a 
ete destitue a la fois par le gouvernement de Barcelone et 
par celuil de France« 

Au jourd' hui f apres le triomphe de ce dernierfsMl rentrait en 
Espagne,il serait fusille.Son frere a ete tue par les vaincus 
d'au jourd*hui ,ou plus precidement par leur police.ll vit 
seul a ParisfSans ressources» 

Mais qui est Mendizabal au point de vue intellectuel ? Il a 
publie dMmportantes etudes de droit naturel et de philosophie 
du droit ; il est egalement tres qualifie pour enseigner le 
droit international .Ne lisant pas 1 'espagnol , je n'ai pu pren- 
dre personnel lement connaissance de toutes ses oeuvres«Mais 
je ne saurais parier qu'avec emotion de celle que j'ai lue. 



I . . 



l'admirable livre qui s*af pel let dans l'edition francaise, 
Aux origines d*une tragedie et dans Pedition anglaise 
Martyrdom of Spain • Ce livre est le cri de justice le plus 
pur qu'il m'ait ete donne d' entendre,et revele d^exception- 
nels talents d'observateur politique« 

Le chomage d'un tel homme n'est pas seulement une injustice : 
c'est une perte deplorable» 

DonCfVoila quelques jours,M.fw1ar itain, dont j'ai l'hooneur 
d'etre l*ami,m'a demande sMl ne serait pas possible de trou- 
ver a Mendizabal,pour qui il a beaucoup d*estime et d'affec- 
tion,une Situation dans une Universite amer icaine«Certes,Men^ 
dizabal ferait tres grand honneur a l'Universite qui l^emploie- 
rait.Une teile intelligence au service d'un caractere aussi 
droit, d*une conscience aussi noblement ehret ienne,vo i la kh8 
Sans doute qui. repond assaz bien a iMdeal du maitre de l*en- 
seignement superieur.Je prends donc la liberte de vous deman- 
der,non eher eollegue,de ehercher si quelque Universite' ameri- 
caine pourrait donner une ehaire a Alfred Wendizabal , s 'assurant 
ainsi le concours d'un homme exeept ionnel« J'ai prie f/iaritain 
de me faire parvenir tous les renseignements possibles sur 1 
carriere de notre ami,et je ne manquerai pas de vous les eom- 
muniquer des que je les aurai recus# 

M.Gur ian, heureux que l'oeeasion me soit donnee d'entrer en re- 

i' 
lations avee vous,me eonseille de vous adresser mes deux der- 

niers livres#Je vous les fais parvenir par le meme eourrier«

Dr. Albert Salomon 

Wapack Lodge 

New Ipswich, N. H« 

Dear Dr. Salomon: 








Many thanks for your letter. I shall ans- 
wer it in more detail vrithin the next few days« 

I would be very glad if you would write the 
artiole of Tocqueville's idea of freedom in the pro- 
blematic Situation of the modern equalitarian democracy. 
Of course, this artiole could be much more longer than 
the average one. We could publish it in two issues. 
But, perhaps, if you would like to write for the first 
issue on Scheler and the future Ideals of America, I 
would be very glad to publish this artiole ♦ikiH^rti^'^^iJ^Ät 

' You ask my opinion on Dr. Winter. I think 
he deserves every help; he is surely a learned man, 
although not too clear in his ideas. Personally, I 
had preferred Hüdebrand or Dempf . (Has Dempf really 
lost his gosition?^ I hear that he has just published 
a new book in Bonn.) Very good also as a philosopher 
is Dr. Balduin Schwarz. He is living in Frebourg, 
Switzerland. Perhaps you know his classic book on 
Error. I saw that Mr. Speier quoted it in Social 
Research . Do you know that Mr. Kommen is looking 
for a Position in the United States? If you wish 
to know some details telephone Mrs. Herz. 

Concerning the affidavit, I will try to do 
w/- best. It is not easy to get one. I had many troubles 
trying to do it, but I hope I can reach something in a 
few weeks. 

I like very much being at Notre Dame. We 
shall have in the beginning of November a Symposium 
on political philosophy with Maritain, Briefs, Slliott, 
etc. as Speakers. You will also be invited, of course. 
I like very much your article on Hut oh ins in Social 
Research. 



Very sincerely yours, 
Waldemar Guriaji

Mr. Albert Solomon 
Social Research 
66 West Tweifth Street 
New York, New York 

Dear Mr» Solomont 

In iJanuary, 1939, the üniversity of Notre 
Dame will begin Publishing a quarterly, THE REVIEW 
OF POLITICS, concerned with political and social 
theories, institutions and techniques» The inquiry 
into the significance of contemporary political and 
social Problems will be made especially in the light 
of history and philosophy. The editors are inviting 
as contributors many American and European scholars 
of divergant opinions and traditions who are united, 
nevertheless, in their belief that today's crises 
cannot be resolved by any merely mechanical changes« 

The editors, therefore, will be honored to 
have you among the contrib\itors and take the liberty 
now of suggesting that you off er an article on any 
subject ¥Öiich you presently consider vital, unless, 
of course, you prefer to have possible subject s in- 
dicated to you. It may be helpful to note that, in 
general, articlos of f ive or six thousand words ¥rill 
be desirable. And if you will accept books for re- 
view, they will be sent to you gladly. 

The editors will thank you heartily for any 
cons iderat ion you may give to this letter and will 
also be very happy to reoeive and to consider well 
your comments and suggestions» 

Yours respectfully.

LielDer Professor Salornon, 



Preundlichen Dank für Ihren Bri-f . Ich lasse das Buch von 
Schelting an Sie gehen, weil ich vermute, daß ich in der nächsten 
Zeit doch nicht zum Lesen kornpie. Sachlich würde es mich scaon 
interessieren und zwar wesentlich aus der geistesgeschichtlichen 
Situation heraus, daß ich glauhe, die sogenannte \7issenschaf tslehre 
wird in einiger Zeit so oder so ein zentrales Prohlem der deutschen 
Entwicklung. Ich für meine Person sehe hier einigermaßen skeptisch 
und stelle der Hilfe die Aufgahe,gegenüher dem Ansturm von Boman- 
tik, "bestimmte logische Nüchtermheiten zu "beschützen. Sollte ich" 
seiher je den starken Drang empfinden, das Buch zu lesen und es 
dahei hier nicht auf treihen zu können, so mirde ich es Mr hei 
Ihnen ausleihen. 

\7enn Sie die Hilfe ahonnieren wollen und womöglich noch 
ein paar Leute gewinnen, so freue ich mich natürlich sehr darüher. 
Wir "bewegen uns so um 9oo Ahonnenten herum, brauchen aher noch 
etwa 3oo, damit die Sache sich einigennaßen trägt und auch mir per- 
sönlich den Ansatz giht, wieder eine "bürgerliche Fund amen ti er ung 
meines Lehens zu schaffen. Daß die Hilfe mit Vorsicht geführt wer- 
den muß, "brauche ich Ihnen nicht erst zu sagen. Aher im ganzen 
glauhe ich, daß wir fast das einzige Blatt sind in Deutscnland, in 
dem man seine Gesinnung nicht verhogen hat. Das ist mir wenigstens 
einmal von der l^aziseite hestätigt worden. 



Sehr froh hin ich darüher, daß Sie mir üher Ihren Ge* 
sundheitszustand einigermaßen hefriedigend scnreihen konnten, 
loh hof^e sehr, daß, nachdem Sie das Schlimmste hinter sich hahen, 
der Weg der G-esundung weitergeht« 



Mit herzlichem G-ruß 



wie im: er Ihr

My time is so thoroughly booked ahead now 
I could not venture to make a definite 
engagement . However, you may be sure that 
sooner or later it will happen. When it

Dear Dr. Salomon: 

I cannot teil you how much I appreciate your kind 
letter and your far too generous article« It seems to me by 
all odds the best Statement about my meager ideas that I 
have Seen. As proof of this, I shoiild like to buy 100 re- 
prints of it. Coiad you arrange this for me and send me the 
bin? 

The thing that distinguishes your paper from 
others that have been written on the same subject is that 
you See what the issues are and you have the education and 
intelligence to appraise them; in Short, you know what you 
are talking about. 

I hope you will let me know if you ever come to 
Chicago or if you are not likely to come in the future you 
will peimit me to call upon you when I come to New York* 

With kind regards and many thanks, believe me 

Sincerely yours.

Dear Dr. Salomon: 

It is a coincidence that two applicants for a position here have 
given me your name as a reference. 

One is Mr. Elliott Camerman, who is now teaching at the Woman*s 
College in Greensboro, North Carolina. The other is Mr. Earl E. 
Hall, who is currently a Student at the New School for Social 
Research. 

On the enclosed description of the opening, I have indicated the 
qualities for which we are particularly looking. I would greatly 
appreciate your giving me an evaluation of each of these appli- 
cants, respectively, both as a teacher and as a person. 

If I may make the Suggestion, I should imagine that it would be 
preferable from your point of view to deal with these two appli- 
cants separately and not comparatively. 

I apologize for placing you under this double bürden but I 
assure you that I shall be deeply grateful for your helpfulness. 

Sincerely yours,

Dear Dr. Johnson, 

I am very happy to teil you that I drafted the out- 
line of the book which you sug-^sted in your letter two years ago« 
I wrote two important chapter of this book last winter. 
My original idea was to give the book the title"Historical Sociology 
arxi a philosophical science of inan."It was my Intention to analye the 
different approaches toward this special division of sociology as a 
combination of scientific metods and a personaliystic philosophy of 
Humanism.This study would have dealt with the soholars who predicted . 
the forthcoming disintegration of European civilization like Jacob 
Burckhardt, V/illiam Dilthey, Goethe, the V/ebers, Troeltsch,Simmel,Toenni^ 
and ^ax Scheler.lt would be easy to include an earlier plan on the pp$, 
dictions of European decline with additional chapters on:I)the Chris 
ian revolt against the nineteenth Century : Kierkegaard (for the . Protest^.^ 
ants), Donoso Cortez(for the Roman Catholics) , Dostojevski,3olovieff ani| 
Berdiaef f (for the Greek Gatholics) , Il^chapter on the liberal conserva^ 
tives like Burke,Tocqueville, Gen tia. These three chapters on predictiors 
in the spiritual, the political and the humanistic -scientific sphere 
should be summarized by a systematic chapter on the prophet,the p ilo- 
sopher ani the scientiözt in the concreteness of history. 
I hope that you are in favor of this enlargement of the original plan 
I think the combination of m^ earlier and present plan will meet with 
your expectations. 



As appendix I wish to add a chapter on predictions in the Anglo-Saxoi 
World. This investigation should clarify the motives which made it po, 
ssible to drop the idea of a fateful and inescapable evolution in fa- 
vor of the wealth of potentlal solutions in each moment of the socia 
process« 





Dear Dr. Johnson, 

whatemar^ight be the merits of^iöwith's article, 
I will praise itjbepÄtise it became the IncpnrCtve for your illumina- 
ting and susgesMve letter.I am happy, indeed, to State that I drafte« 
the outline of th ds book f-op-two years and wrote an important p'art 
of it last Winter. <C^'^ 

You raise the most serious and crucial questions regarding the sig- 
nlficanoe and importance of thR^ft-p-rftriinti nn flVm4.A~-^y^oQtri^n ig j^i«t1l 
f^-e drin particl3 ira r ,b e ca u 4i^e-^st historians of ideas do not give att 
attention to the 3ifferent types of prediction . 

There are prophets of doom when new inventions and ideas introduce 
elonents of change into an established order.They are romantic esca- 
pists and their predictions are mostly of no value,because they ove: 
emphasize the element of novelty as a purely ne^tive one. After all.| 
the panio which was aroused by the first rairoads did not materiali 
in a catastrophy. 

There are the prophets of doom who naively identify their vested in- 
terests with the moral order of the universe. These social eschatolo- 
gists do not understand the world any longer when their monopolisti 
Position becomes problematic. 

These two types of predictions are certainly without any relevance 
for understanding the forthcoming trends of social development. 
There are however types of prediction which should be taken serious- 
ly although they are pre-scientif ic in the mod rn use of the term« 
Gonservative statesmen like ^1etternich and Edmund Burke described 
accurately the probable effects of the revolutionary events.They we« 
re without any emotional bias.The objectivity and precision of thei: 
predictions result from the realism of a conservative spirit.They 
knew by experierice and practi^e the ictual motives,needs and loyal- 
ties of their people.They were aware of what nations take for gran- 
ted and what it means to shake the principles and beliefs of men# 
They are realists and can easily predict the negative and destructi' 
consequences of the disintegration of their very world. Radical uto- 
pfets like the Jacobins or the Marxists beli^e in the miracle of the; 
political and social prlnciple of redemption and are unable to pre- 
dict the results of their revolutions.Of coursetit is a rule of so- 
cial action that we must dare the imposslble for getting the possibl| 
For this reason,progress according to scientific short-range pre- 
dictions are posslble only in a conservative world of reforms. 





There Is another type of predlctlons whlch I have called the huma- 
nistlc type of soolological forecasting. Thelr predictions are ba- 
sed on comprehens ive historlcal and economic studles.They draft thel 
probable tendenclea of social developments In their autonomoua pro- 
cesses and draw conclusiona for the structural concatenatlon of de-| 
termlnants.They confront the scientific analyses whlch point to a 
thoropughly collectlvlstlc and total itarian world wlth thelr llberu. 
Ideal of the Independent and brave, responslble and thoughtful perso] 
nality which comes Into Its own as devoted to a cause and to the 
norms of the mlnd.This is not an ideologlcal case of vested lnteres| 
This is the genuine despair of the thinker and scholar wh4 cannot 
live but in a s tuation of Independence and personal respönslbllltyl 
This crlterlon of the militant liberal makes the scientific work of 
the Webers. Simpel, Toerailes.Dllthey and Burckhardt the most accurate 
and objectlve prediction of the developments leadlng toward the pre 
sent crisis.lt should be metionned in this context that these scho-| 
lars have checked the positive and destructive elements in the sa- 
me Situation. Burckhardt' s analyses of ind ivi dual ism, Weber' s inter- 
preations of capit lism have tougnt us to recognlze the two aspects 
of the same phenomenon and to get aware of the price we have to pay 
morally and socially for changes and transformations. Thelr predict- 
ions are pes.iimlstlc as Short ränge forecasting. They are optlmistlo 
in tie Ions run,because these scholars beliece in the lasting dlg- 
nity of the creatlve human mlnd which will reestablish itys indepen 
dence time and agin over aginst all oppresslons.

Dear Dr« Salomonl 

I have yotir letter of October 3« Whlle I thlnk the 
plan of a book you iudicata is interesting in itseif^ it is 
not the idea I am urging lapon yotu IThis idea is that there 
has been throxt^iout the 19th and 20th eentxiries a lag he- 
tween the premisee of the scholars and the erente vhieh they 
ehroniele and critieize* Eenee the estrangement hetireen 
philosophy and recditj^ and the unreality of philosophical 
pessinism« Tou can't possihly read Spengler or eren Hieteche^ 
vithout a feeling that if they could hare rleved their times 
as an immediacy^ instead of throngh glasses a generation old^ 
their coziclusione vould have been entirely different« 

I do not mean to maintain that a scholar «ho truly 
knove hie timee liotild neeessarily he optimistic* But a schol-* 
ar whese ideale are set on an earlier order is neeessarily 
pessimistic* 

Ho doubt mach in your earlier studies would be usefol 
for this project* Bat a gaijge of scholarly effectiTeness is 
the degree in i^ieh one is villing to scrap hard iion material 
that is not strictly relerant«

Dear Dr. Salomon: 

The outline is that of an extremelj in- 
tereflting and valiiable book. 

« 

-K 

I do not, however, see any basis for ap- 
plying for a fellowship grant. Those grants are reserved, 
for the aost part, for younger scholars who have no other 
means of livelihood« lour project is one that does not 
require leavee of absence or travelling; nor would it be 
advanced by the employment of assistants. It is preeminently 
the one man Job of an established professor, who can give 
a pairt of his time in the academic year and all of his time 
in vacation to the work« 

Perhaps there are aspects of the Situation 
I do not under stand. But on the face of your outline I 
should strongly urge you not to apply for a grant. It is 
not helpful to our Faculty to have applications rejeeted. 

Sincerely,

Dear Dr. Salomon: 



I am much impressed by the presentation 
in the article which you so kindly sent me some 
weeks ago. It is a very stimulating Statement 
and I would much like to see it published. With 
this in m:"nd, I have pencilled some linguistic 
corrections in the manuscript but, as there were 
one or two points on v/hich I was not clear, I 
thought it would be best to return it to you v^ith 
these pencillings so that you could perhaps con- 
sider them before we discuss it together. I 
would be happy if, after you have looked over 
these and told me whether they are all in line 
with your meaning or not, you would give me a 
call so that we can arrange a meeting. I am 
looking forward to seeing.you. 




Sincerely yours.

Daar Miss Clark, 

UiBB %yer Just nrote me that you are leavlng for 
Vasoar and I asked a f rlend of mlne to return you the manußorlpt 
of your Gtlmulatlng and Interestlng artlole that ne dlöcuB^ad at 
lensth over the telephone.I hope that, In the raeantlme,you have fl- 
nißhed your neu eßsay -.ind yiu v/111 be klnd enough to give me the 
opportunlty to see you if you /ill come to New York over . eekend* 
I v/ould bee very grateful,lndeed, If I had the prlvlloge to (Jlscußs 
your very excltlng artlole whloh next the bock of MIsg Butler is a 
vory Important contrlbutlon to t e enlishtenment of a national spl- 
rlt. 

I v;ould like to suggest the followlng quo tlons as fundarr© ntal f or a 
useful dlsousslon:I.)l agree wlth your oaslo theslB that the organl-- 
olstlo trend of conservatlve thlnklng is a characterlstlo featuro cf 
Gerraan thought#I do not know whether you rernember that in cur dlscuD 
ion over the telephone I ßuggested to Invectlgate the problem how ffc 
far the inollnatlon tovjard that raode of thlnklng is deter^lned by cx) 
clal and eoonomlo condltlons or by epirltual and Ideal f-otors?T>ie 
lastlng patriarchallsm In the coclal relatlonships proßento a oonci- 
derable lag behlnd the rational institutlons of tne absolutlstlc rd- 
glme. enoe the rlse of thls trend of phllosophlzlng ralght be a ßocl# 
logloal rather than a psych ologlcal phenoraenon.On the other band, the 
adJuBtment to roolal condltlons Is an actlve and spontaneous effort 
that cannnot explalned oomplotely by Gociologlcal Imputatlons.Mence 
the Problem arl es how far the Intellectual raovements do contrlbuto 
to moulding a national splrlt? 2.)l/^ay I Qug(^ot another problem for 
a dlscusslon?Does the orBanlclütlo trend of thought corro pond the 
genoral docllne of the phllosophy of Natural Law In the Protostant 
parte of Germany?! am incllned to emphasize more ßtrongly than Glcxw 
ke and Troeltsoh that t e Separation and Isolation of Germany from 
the fiXiropean olvlllzatlon lo due to the decay of attural Law recult- 
Ing from the Protestant theology« 3.) In oontext wlth thls idea I 
vvould llke to ralse the problem how far thlo organlclstlo phllosophy 
opens t e woy to all the poeudo-rellglous polltloal theorlos v; loh o 
end In the theology of blood and soll«4,)I suggested In our talk a 
oareful analysis of the Left-^wing groups among German Liberale In th 
*'Paulskirche^',because raany of them shared the organ clstlo dootrinec 
and applied them for the liberal and democratio postulates.I romoralr 
that, wlth referenoe to iSuaroz,! asked you v/hether It ould not be )0 
sslble to xxse the organldslto theory In a conservatlve and In a li- 
beral sense llke the theorles of Natural Law.5.)Flnally,I ould rale 
the nroblem h w far thls trend of thought is determlnod by a oonctol 
latlon of condltlons In wh oh the seoularlzation of the Jataollo-hc* 
herlta^fe In Lutheranlsm is no le^s Importint than the polltloal and 
soolologloal determlnatlons« 

I would be very glad If you uould cug^^est some other probloms«

am surptolsed iDy Its oontent.I really do not knov/ how Dr, Clark 
and her frlond oan talk about a "gros ly neglcotful"be havlor of 
mine* 

I read Immedlately Dr. Clark 's extre^nely Interestlng paper and 
had a long talk ulth her over the telephona,becuse I v/ae Just 
wrltlng an artlole, 3he agroed mlth me on the idea of poGtponlng 
a personal dlscuSL lon,because she horself nas very bußy at that 
tlme and naa v/ritlng a solentlf Ic esray whloh g e .vished to have 
flnifl od fjefore.or thls reason I askod her to be klnd cnou^h to

I oan teil : ou e actly all the detalls of cur conversatlon« 
First J told her that t' e artlcle Is oxtrenely Interestlng and 
contalns neu approaohes toryard a coclology of knowledge. oxt the 
book of ''^Iss Butler thls artlcle Is an important oontrlbutlon to ., 
the Interpretation of the Gorman charaoter.I a^rood v;lth hör thec/j 
that; In GöiBralfthe conservatlve trends cf tnlnki -g In Germany do

nal Institutl n of the modern State« n Germany, er at lea t in Gon( 
parts of ^ Gor many,t höre nere many ooclal and economic conditionc 
v/hloh were favorable to thCLO ways of thinking« ov/ever I told Dr« 
Clark that I do not belleve that t-^e orl^ln of the orsanlcl. tio 
t'^ought could bc explalned by a soclologlcal Imputation« urthcrno: 
I asked her to reconslder the uholo problem as far as involvlng a 
genoral theory on tho int rrelatlonshlp betvjeon Gernan concervatli 
and organlclstic thlnklng«! su T^^ected a careful Investlgation of

•^•^any of them have aoolied .Tust the orsanlolctlc Idoa for t' olr li

ronce to uarez,that t^^e organlclstic t ory can be uscd In a con-

to take Into consideration,hov; far t o organlclstic approach In 
groups In Genriany is deterroined by the Clements of patr jarc-^allem 
p rv dins Oven the absolutlstlo forms of ^overnmcnt In the g all 
Gtatos v;hloh were only enlarsed rnancrlal ostates« 
Thi;: was tho content of my Ideas I devolopod in our conver atlon. 
Dr.Clark told ^e t «at 8 e found the idea on progre^ii^lve organicl:t| 
thought very Interestlng and t^^at thoro was a real problem« I wac 
very stimulated by t is dlsoussion and I asked her the privllo(^e 
see her as soon as It ivoul be poseible for her. 
I really cannot understand t at c e has completoly forgotten t iü

Ify dear Professor Salomon: 





I am authorized ty the Board of Directors of 
the New School for Social Research to inform you that you 
have been appointed Professor of Sociology in the Graduate 
Faculty of Political and Social Science. 

This appointment runs for two years, beginning 
September 1, 1934. The salary is $4000 per annum, payable 
monthly from vSeptember 1, 1934. If you find it desirable 
to be in New York earlier than September 1, arrangements 
can be made for advancing the schedule of payment. 

Sincerely, 

Director

Dear Professor Salomon: 



• 



I am veiy happy to hear that you are making progress 
toward the restoration of your health. I have had no 
doubt since seeing you in London that, given time, you 
will accomplish tnis end. 

It goes without saying that we miss you. Your judgment 
would be helpful to us in many cases, On the other 
band, our real work begins next fall when v/e shall have 
had time to establish our position as a purely educa- 
tional Institution not connected nor concerned vvith 
political events, The faculty has accomplished very 
well the pioneer worK: of Organization. It has attained 
a Wide popularity and you would be surprised at the 
progress that its members have made in speaking English. 
The other evening Dr. Speier pressnted an important 
paper in English which was almost superior to that of 
the other members of the faculty. Not only was the Eng- 
lish adequate, but the discussion was presented with 
extraordinaiy clarity and charm. There is no question 
in my mind that Dr. Speier will win himself a significant 
place in the academic life of America. 



With the kindest regards, 



\' 



Sincerely,

Dear Professor Salomon: 




I have your letter and I am vei^^ much distressed. I am 
soTTir that you can't come this fall and more sorr^'" be- 
cause of the condition of health that it implies. Yet I 
hope that the convalescent period is not to be one of 
distress. I feel confident, after seeing you and having 
the evidence of iiry ov^m eyes of your gallant efforts tov/ard 
recover:^, that the snring will ^ind you far on the road 
to coirplete recov^i^r. Yet I think it is better to count 
on your first appearance before classes here in the fall. 
The Unit of American Instruction is the year, not the term, 
and it is not reallj'- possible to or^Tani^e successful clas- 
ses for 7/ork that does ::ot begin in October. Je shall 
welcome you ;"henever you .^ind it practicable to come, but 
it is rny advice that you wait until the summier. 



I hoDe that you /ill count yourself with us in spirit 
through the year and let us hear how you are cretting on. 
Of course if there is anything that v7e can do for you, 
command us.

Dear Professor Salomon: 




I should have written earlier to 
teil you hovj glad I am that your health is improvin^ 
steadily, and that you find yourself able to make progre 
with your work. I think our students might be deeply 
interested in such a subject as the place of sociology 
in Occidental thought. 



SS 




We have been very busy getting ready 
for the press our new Quarterly, It is a great pity you 
weren»t here to contribute to the first issue. It is 
turning out an interesting venture, and promises great 
value as a part of the program of cross-fertilization of 
cultures« 



At the present time I do not con- 
template a European trip for next su^uner. I wish I might 
come over; I*d particularly like to visit Oermany. But 
I have a heavy program of Tiork for the summer, especially

Dear Professor Salomon: 




Dr. Lederer spoke to me today in regard to the date of 
your next check. He indicated that it would suit your 
requirements very much better to consider the first check 
as pajnnent in advance from January 15 to February 15, with 
the second check falling due in advance on February 15, and 
so on. 

In this we are glad to raeet your convenience and I enclose 
the check accordingly. The understanding then is that the 
final check in any year falls due Deceraber 15 although the 
teaching enpagement would continue down to the beginning of 
the February term. 

The deduction from your check is in accordance with Instructions 
from Dr. Brandt that you wished«'t'6 make the jnonthly contribution 
to the Notgemeinschaft that is customs^ry among the members of 
the Faculty. 

Hoping that these arrangements meet your requirements, I am, 

Sincerely,

Lieber Herr ^alomon, 





Ich freue mich, von Ihnen zu hören ( ch 
hatte keine Ahnung, dass ' le In New ^^ rk sind), 
und wurde mich ebenfalls herzlich freuen, sie wie 
derzMsehen.oles kann soiar möglicherweise ziem- 
lich bald geschehen, da ich im Lauf der nächsten 
T^ge nach New ^ork fahren muss. Sobald der Tag 
(es h^.ndelt -Ich um eine Bespr -chung, deren Ter- 
min noch nicht ganz fe tsteht) bestimmt ist, wer- 
de ich Ihnen einen entsprechenden vorf^chl- g ma- 
chen .3 Ind Gle telephohfsch erreichbar? 

In bezug auf Kurt Badt (von dem ich schon 
anderweitig horte) irl sich , fürchte icb,kaum 
etwa? machen lassen, von allem anderen abgese- 
hen schon deshalb nicht, weil er ,der nie in sei- 
nem Leben irgendeiner "organlsation"sich h-^t 
eingliedern lassen und jeder Form des "Betriebes" 
so abhold ist, In Amerika bestimmt nicht gedeihen 
kann. Kr mag jetzt die T?mpflndung h.3ben,dass 
"alles besserist als sein Jetziger zustand in 
Deutschland", aber er würde nach kurzer zeit hie 
mindestens ebenso unglücklich sein. Aber wir wol- 
len den T?all lieber mündlich besprechen.

Thank you very much for your kind letter about my article« 
I have been very much interested in your omi article> about Max 
Weber in Social Research, especially since I am just now engaged 
in writing a fairly füll account of Weber *s work as part of a 
book I hope to publish soon. It is also very interesting to me 
that you are writing on Dilthey. It should be a great contribu- 
tion both in itself and toward helping English-speaking sociolo- 
gists to understand the German development. 

I hope very rauch to meet you in the near future. In any 
case I shall be in New York for the sociological meetings at 
^ I Chris traas time, 3ut if I should happen to get there before, I 
shall drop Jröu a note and see if we cannot arrange a meeting, 

Sincerely yours.

Dear Dr. Saloman: 

May I senä you a belated word of thanks and appreclation? 
I flrst heard of your review of ny book on lOcqueville about a month ago, but 
slnoe that date a nunber of my friends and colieagues here have spoken of your 
article with enthuslaßm, and I have now secured a copy of Social Hesearch ani i^ad 
what you were so good aß to say a^oout IQcqueville arü Beaiiaont In America. I am 
frank to say that I am overvi?helined. 

From what you saM about Tocqueville in your own article a while 
agp, I knew that we tended to look at TocquevilLe from Aomen^iat the same point 
of View, But I aiü certainly far froia deser^ing aU the pralses that you give me. 
Self-toowledge forces me to say, for ex¥i?)le, that m^ ovm work is certainly more 
hunan and less •scientific' than you are so good as to intimate. I need not add, 
that lÄiether deserved or not^your kini remarks warn an autho^'s heart. You have 
clearly given the subject more real thou^t arü sti;dy than most of ny other 
reviewers put together, so ttet your approval weighs doub]y with me in 
providing me with a sense of satisfaction with work done. I developed an 
admiration for your article on lOcqueville some tlme ago. Now I would like to 
express the personal gratltude that 1 feel as well, You have put me urxier 
real obllgations, J

deals with Tocquevii.e himself , I thirili I a^^ree vdth ycu entirel-^ Gert^lnly 
lie was a philosopher, rather th-^n a scientist, ancl a sociologist''rather than 
a stucleat 01 ttie science of politios in its rnore circuiascrroed i-ieara.-^. Hciualxv 
his interest lajr in preservir^^ fresdom, without, as vou su(^,est, lOvSing the 
def inite 'oencf its to be obtained i'roia en iinproved staniaid of livir:^ Tor the 
lower olasses. He feared mass action, noob nale, the overvvl'ieliriiiQo tyranav of soiae 
iinpassioned majorities. I don't thinli he ever feit that he hsö. realuy fouoi the 
perfect defense a^lnst pressure; but all his thinlcinp; drew him tov/ani the con- 
clusion that only Ijj dignifying enä fortifyins the Laiividual personalit^r, in 
person af ter person, B.rxi g;ener9.tioa af ter p;eneration, could you oreate a certain 
bulwark arainst the annihila^tion of the indivic^.ual. On the other liarxl, should 
the huian indivic^.ual ever be annihilated - say in some state-ist society - then 
Tocqueville woliH no longer have 'oeen interested in mn, or in lif e. 

With v/hat you teil your students about the obligations of 
the historian I am in thorougj-i agreement. ^Te are stuients of hurianity, not of ina.tter. 
And our understandLi^ aannot oome by test-tubes or theoretical rnatheiriatics. 
Tne experiinental-lofrical method does not ap;^\v to lagn. /ind I confess that I 
consider the scientists #10 predict that soon all thinp;s wil.. be explicable ^ 
Science to be presumptlous. 

The Yale Librai^^ did not have, and I did not icnow about, your

Dear Dr. SaloDX)n: 

Allow me to thank you for your essay on "Tooquevllle ' s HillosojÄ^y 
of Ereedom", reprinted from the Review of Politics for this mcnüi^ You are more 
than generous In sending me Tooqueville materlals, aa well as in your mentions of 
my book, and I want to say that I appreclate both« 

Being a novlce In matters of philosophy, I am not sure that I have 
fully grasped the arsunent you make. But so far as I have understood your posltion 
I find much to applaud and agree wlth. What you say about the "demonry of social 
Institutions" seems partlcularly strlklng; and It Is perfectly clear to me that 
Tooqueville was tiylng to strengüien the Indlvidual agalnst that enerr^r. l agree 
that Tooqueville was always trylng to nuster the splrltual elements of hunan natura 
for thls battle. (p.^3) As I have not yet had tiie opportmlty to look i;^ your 
artlcle on the dlstinction between soclology and sociologlsm, I won't conment on 
your polnt that TocquevUle ' s own belief in thB levelllng law represented a 
dlff erent kind of determlnlsm fron that of CJomte ani Hegel; but the siÄgestlon 
interests me. Your bellef that Tooqueville did not f eel csapable of creating a 
phllosophy of man anä hls hlstory seems to me Justlf led. One ml^t aixaost sot that 
at least a part of hls pesslmlsm was rooted In hls IrBblUty to to do more to 
rescue the soul of man In a soul-less age? 

Somewhere reoently I read of how mountainclimbers sometliaes fall 
into crevasses in the Ice, or are turled li^f a slide. And af terwards thelr bodles 
reappear, peitiape at the foot of the glacler, Only they are no lor^er whole. A 
pleoe will be here, another there, another a lorg way off. The internal grlixiing 
of th^ce has tom them to pleoes. Waan't that what Tooqueville was afraid would 
h^jpen to man s splrltual Integrlty, under the unf eeling pressure of the modern 
Society? 

Agaln ras appreclatlon for your oourtesy.

Schreiben vom 20,3. ,. in welchem ich als erstes hi^für in Betracht kommen- 
des Datum den 14.5. angab^ istal;90 irrig. 

Ausserdem muss die anli eg ende Jahresbescheinigung, welche sich auf den 
Zeitraum vom 1.4.34 bis jetzt bezieht, au;^efüllt und von der dortigen Be- 
hörde,, ebenso wie die Vi er teljahr es erklärung^ bescheinigt werden. Ob unter 
Ziffer 1 auch das dortige T?:inko mmen anzuheben i st^ v;eisa ich nicht genau. 
Ich möchte es anae iiien; jedenfalls wirst Du aber darüber von einem Deiner 
Kollegen zuverlässigere Auskunft bekommen können. 

Ich stelle atineim, ob Du die Jahresbescheinigung und die Vierteljahres- 
erklärung an Herrn Dr .Rauchf lei sch( An derLiünze 19) oder an mich einsenden 
willst, m jedem falle wäre t;ine U eb ersendung an die Regi erungstiauptiasse 
direkt untunlich,, weil man sonst hier Keinerlei Kontrolle hat. Solltest 
Du die Bescheinigungen nicht an mich senden,, bitte ich jedenfalls um i^lach-

von cer Krankenversicherung soll jetzt die Genehmigung der Devisenstelle 
zur Einzahlung eines Betrages von 561^50 RU. auf Sperrkonto eingeholt wer-

Lieber Albert, liebe Ajanai 

Heute will ich Euch nur einige geschäftliche m tteilungen machen und 
etst in einigen i&gen über Persönliches berichteni 

Dl p Bescheinigungen des dea eralkonsulats habe ich erhalten und nach Köln 
weitergeleitet. Dieses Mal trug die Lebensbescheinigung kein Datum. Jedoch 
ist die Auszahlung durch die Regierung erfolgt, da sich aus der Aufein- 
anderfolge der beiden journalmmmern das Datum zwanglos ergab Ich bitte 
aber in Zukunft vor Absendung der Urkunden auf ordnungsmässiee Datierung 
uhd Unterschrift zu achten. ^amaasige ijaxierung 

2.) 

wri~ic3h Euch schon achrieb, halte ich in Uebereinstimmung mit Eurer Bank inl 
K. die Aufr«hterhaltung Eurer "Auswanderer-Sperrguthaben" für nu«ld.os und 
einen Verkauf derselben als Sperrmark trotz des grossen Verlustes für bes- 
?^S da Ihr dann wenigstens den Erlös in Devisen erhaltet. Demgemass habe 
ichdem Bankhaus A.Leyy m Köln Auftrag gegeben. Eure Guthaben tur Verfü/-un£ 
der New York RanseaUc Oorp. in New york zu halten und übersende Euch an- ' 
/ liegend Abschrift dieses Auftragsschreibens. Mit diesem muaa einer von Euchl 
zu der vorbezeichneten Bank ziehen und ihr Verkaufsauftrag für die i-izwiach 
aus Köln wohl mitgeteilten Guthaben geben. Bei Anna sind es etwa 1800. -RM.' 
bei Albert etwa 55p,-HM. Zur Durchführung des Verkaufs wird noch eine Ge- 
nehmigung der Devisenstelle in Köln, welche ihrersei ts eine Unbedenklich- 
keitebescheinigung des Finanzamts Köln verlangen wird, erforderlich sein. 
Darüber wird Euch die dortige Bank Bescheid sagen und wohl das Nötige ver- 
axLj.as3e2i. ^ 

Dieselben Erwägungen sprechen dafür, auch die noch vorhandenen Wertpapiere, 
die zum Teil von Deiner Mutter, liebe Anna, zum Teil von Onkel adolf stam- 
men, zu verkaufen und über den Erlös in gleicher weise zu verfügen. Auch 
insoweit befinde ich mich in Uebereinstimmung mit Eurer Bank. Der wert der 
Papiere beträgt nach dem augenblicklichen Kurs etwa 9 bis 9.600 -RM so 
dass Ihr bei dem Verkauf über Sperrmark etwa 18oo bis 1900. -M. in Devisen 
erlösen würdet, obwohl ich nicht glaube, dass Ihr einen anderen Standpunkt 
als die Bank und ich einnehmen werdet, ist der Entschluss doch so weit- 
reichend, dass ich Ihn nicht einfach auf Grund meiner G. neralvollmacht ohne 
Bire ausdrückliche aistimmung fassen will. Die hierdurch eintretende Verzö- 
gerung ist nich t wich tig, da sich weder an den Kurseh der Papiere, noch der 
Vfermertbarkeit des Erlöses Grundlegendes ändern wird 

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich mich auch bei der hiesigen Beutschen Bank wegen 




der ausländischen, aus dem Nachlass von Onkel Adolf stammenden Wertpapiere;! 
über welohe 4ie Devisenstelle die freie Verfügung genehmigt hat, erkundigt, 
Dabei wurde mir gesagt, dass über die 25 Stück Western Mary Land com.Sharei 
bereits von Bxch aus am 24»Mai verfügt sei. Bitte teilt mir mit, ob das 
stimmt. 

Bezüglich der L 129.12 (1/6 Anteil von i 777.12.8) Union of Soulii 
Africa 4^ Local Reg. stock Certificat liegt die Sache schwieriger, weil es 
sich bei ihnen nicht um shares, sondern um einen buchmässigen Anteil han- 
delt. Insoweit habe ich Auftrag gegeben, den Anteil in Johannisbur^r, wo 
das Papier verwaltet wird, bestmöglichst zu verkaufen, den Erlös in amer- 
Dollars zu konvertieren und auf Annas Konto, hei der Corn Exchange Bank in 
i^ew York ^ überweisen. Die Deutsche Bank,« hier, hat diesen Auftrag unter 
dem 11.11. mit Luftpost nach Johannisburg weitergegeben. Die Durchführung 
dieser l^ansaktion wird wohl mehrere Wochen in Anspruch nehmen. 

Mi t schreiben vom 18.9. hatte ich angefragt, ob Euch die bewussten 10 ^ 
wahrfage fee, wie mir die Versicherungsgesellschaft bereits am 30.7. mit- 
teilte, erstattet worden sind und o b Buch auch der Sachschaden gemäss 
ihrer Mitteilung an mich ersetzt worden ist.

Ew. Hochwohigeboreni 

Mein Bruder, Professor Dr. Aibert Salomon, zur Zeit in i^ew- 
York, hat mich, als aoinen Gexieraibevollmachtigten, mit der 
Regelung der ?;r3tattu:^ der überzahl len Bezüge beauftragt. Dabei 
bemerke ich vorweg, dasG mein Bruder bereits im Frühjahr 1934 
rBCh Abijciruuss seines Vertrages mit der :vew School Por Social 
Research in i^ew-York, aus welchem oich die Höhe meiner Bezüge 
ergab, diesen sofort dem damals noch zustÄnäigen Handelsministe- 
rium eiliger eicht hat, um seine B^^urlauburig zu beantragen. 
Ausserdem ist der Regierui^ohauptfcasse Köln im Juni 19S5 die 
übliche Jahresbescheinigung durch Vermittlurig meines damaligen 
St uerberaters, Herrn Dipl.-Kf^i. Dr .Kur t Rauchfleisch, überge- 
ben worden^ Auch aus dieser Jahresbescheiiiigurig ergab sich 
die Höhe des amerikanischen Einkommerjs meines Bruders. Die 
Aniahme, dass mein Bruder sein neues Eixikommen nicht sofort 
mitgeteilt habe, und die Ueb er Zahlung hierauf zurückzuführen 
sei^ ist also unzutreffend, selbstverstttnälich sollen aber 



die überzahlten Beträge erstattet werden. Bevor ich Vorschläge 
hierzu unterbreite, bitte ich noch um Aufklärung der meinem 
Bruder übersandten Aufstellung in fo Ige i^en punkten; 

lA 

Das Ruhegehialt soll um die liälfte des 6.600.-RM» übers teigen-

Reohtösmalt Dr. Haas Kallinaa% 



K e 1 ü 



Gexeoxiahof, 

Sehr gedirter Herr Kollege! 

Aaf Tera-jlaaaang aeiaea Bruders, Professor Dr .Albert Salomon in 
New york, der mit ihrem Herrn Bruder bekannt ist, erlaube ich mir, 
Ihnen folgenden nachverhalt zu unterbreiten; 

Mein Bruder iat als Dozent am Berufspädagogiachen Institut in 
Köln tätig gewesen, im Jahre 1953 ist er penaicuii^rt worden. Kr hat 
dann Anlang 1934 mit der i4ew school por Social Research in [\iew York 
einen Vertrag abgeschlossen, nach welchem er dort Torleöungen halten 
und ein Jahresgehalt von 4000. — bekommen sollte. Der Vertrag 
ist dem damals für das Berufapädagogische Institut suot&ndigen 
pr eussi ach en Handelsministerium zur Geiißhaigung eingereicht worden. 
Dieses hat die Geriehmi^ung orteilt und gl Ichzei tilg aucOi den Antrag 
meines Bruders bewilligt, dasa aeine BeÄüge für die Zeit seiner Ab- 
wesenheit an unsere Kitern bezahlt werden. Abschritt dieser Genehm 
migttx^ füge ich in der Anlage bei. 

Infolge eines Unfalls hat mein Bruder ;ieine lÄtigkeit in i^ew York 
erst rioä^ Januar 1935 aufnehmen können. Sein Ruhegehalt ist vom 



Pebruar 1955 bis einscJhili eösli ch Juni 1936 aa unsere Bitern gezahlt 
worden^ Seitdem ist die w^i terzahlune^ öurch den Hegierungapräaidtnt 
/ Köln mit absciirif tlicii anliegendem schreiben vom 19.6.1936 gesperrt 
worden, weil unter Berücksichtigung des ausländischen ULxdcommena mei- 
ües Bruders eine üeberzahluag in Höhe roa. 19o6,o6 BM stattgefunden 
/ hattd. Abschrift der Aufstellaag füge ich gleichfalls bei. 

Die Bemerkung in dem schreiben des R ogierungspräsidenten^daas 
meinBruder sein neues si kommen nicht sofort abgemeldet hd(|^ ist 
unzutreff eiK3. Denn abgesehen davon, dass er, wie oben bemerkt, 
gl'?ich nach Abschluss dea Vertrages diesen dem Preussi sehen Handels- 
miaisterium eingereicht hat, ergab sich dieses neue linkommen auch 
aus der im Juni 1935 auf Erfordern der Regierung eingereichten Jahr es- 
bescheinigung. Die Ueberzahlung ist daher Jedenfalls ohne VerüChulden 
meines Bruders eingetreten. Möglicherweise liegt die Unkenntnis d«r 
Regierung in Köln daran, dasa die Beruf apädagogi sehen Institute im 
Zuge einer Umgruppierung dem Unterrichtsministerium unterstellt wor- 
den sind, uro izdem hätte die Regierung aber aus der im Jahre l^$t 
eingereichten Jahresbescheinigung die Bezüge lueines Bruders ersehen 
und daraufhin eine Kürzung der zur Auszahlung kommenden Beträge vor- 
nehmen könien. 

Auf all dies habe ich in lüeinem schreiben an den Herrn Regierungs 
/ präsidenteil vom 6.d.?!., welches ich gleichfalls in Abschrift beifüge, 
hingeiriesen. ich habe dort auch noch verschiedene Aufklärungen er- 
beten u nd ferner darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass der Kind er Zuschlag 
seit April 1936 erhöht werden müsate, weil meinBruder im April 36 
einen cohn bekommen, aanmehr also zwei Kiader hat. Eine Antwort habe 
ich bisher noch nicht erhalten.

Wahrsoheialicli wird der überzahlte Betrag erstattet werden 
müssen, trotzdem die U^b er zah laiig von meinem Bruder jolcht zu Ter-* 
treten Ij^t, Die isri^itattUiig könnte aua einem hiesigen Sperrkonto 
rjsch EinholujQ^ einer Devi3ej:5genehmigung erfolgen, Dab6i müssten 
dann die für die iiox^ate Juli bxa üepcember 1936 an und für sich 
zu zahlenden, aber ei nbehaltenen Betrage^ deren genaue Höhe unter 
BerückBichti^UDg des erhönten Kl xid er Zuschlag es moh festzusetzen

nicht ei xl) exogen werden, da die Gexjehmigung des Ministeriums zur 
j\bhaltui^ von Vorlesungen zunächst nur bis zum ;.eptenber 1936 
erteilt war. Eine VerlÄrigcrung ist zwar beantragt, bisher aber 
noch nicht bewilligt, 

Di^". Bitte meijies Bruderu geht xmxi dahin, dass Sie, sehr geehrte: 
Herr Kollege, die A^elogemeit durch persönliche Rücksprache 
mit dem Sachbearbeiter klÄren und fördern, da auf schriftlichem 
Wege üchwer weiter zu kommen ist»

Lieber Albertl 

vom Ministerium ist Jetzt auf Deinen Antrag vom 4 •9, die abschrift-l 
lieh anliegende Genehmigung eingegangen« Sie ist deshalb zu mir gekom- 
men^ weil ich mich auf Grund meiner Vollmacht mehrfach iiach dem Stande 
der Sache erkundigt habe« Das Original des Bescheides behalte ich hier,| 
da es ja wahrscheixilich zur Vorlage bei der Bark oder sonstigen Stel- 
len benötigt wird« Aus der Bezugnahmeauf den Bescheid vom 16«Mai 34 
ergibt sich^ dass wiederum von 3 Monaten zu 3 Monaten i^ebensbescheini-l 
gungen,. Reichsangehörigkeitsbescheinigung und pol«Piihrung3zeugnis vor- 
zulegen sind und hiervon die Bezahlung der Bezüge abhängig ist« Ich 
bitteDich also^ diese Bescheinigungen Jetzt wieder zu beschaffen, 
Wenn*^m Augenblick eine Auszahlung noch nicht möglich ist, weil die 
Erstattung der überzahlten Beträge nicht geregelt ist, sind die Be- 
scheinigui^en trotzdem beizubringen,, damit evtl« eine Venechnuiag, mit 
den neu fällig gewordenen Bezügen erfolgen kann« 

Die erbetene Geburtsurkunde von Jrank ist inzwischen hoffentlich 
von Euch besorgt und abgesanit worden«-

Die pensiunsai]geiegeiiheit ist -iin, v;ie von Richard vorgeschla-

RM 1 9oc3,c6 aus denbioher einb^altenen Betragen und den noch künf-

keiner Seite et/zas zurücügezanlt werden muss, die altern aber vor-

Angelegei^heit von Anoa » s Konto nein Geld genommen worden, -.ie Ihr

Auf dem Sperrkonto von Albert sind rjoch ca. RM ö5ü.-. Sollte dies

m der Aii^ele^enlieit Ihrer Beiträge zur Ver.5orgui\;akasse 
der Aerztekammer habe ich den Sachverhalt eingehend ^epriilt. 

Eü liegt eine E-it >.;heiduiig de^ üb erlu .ideog er ichts Düooel- 
dorf vor, Inder aUogeführt .vird, da3S lür das Verhältnis des 
eiLizelnen Arztes zur Yer .oor^Uii^üka.^se mcn t die Allgemeinen Ver-

Ld t dera Deutschen Aerz tev '-roicheru.igjver ein ,jich t von 6en Aerzten 
sondern von der i^x.rz tej^iammer gejchi-Oosen iot . Vi .amehr ist iür 
die Beziehungen des einz elaen Arztes lediglich die 3a tzung der Ver- 
sorguiigoüasse der Aerz teiiammer maoogebeiid. Diese bestimmt in 
§ 28, daos Aerzte, die ihren Wohnsitz ins Ausland vorlegen, die 
Mi tglied-.chaft üur mit Zu^^ "ti-iiiüiui^ der Aerz tenammer lortsetzen 
können. J}ie AerzteKammer nat in Ihrem Fall durch SntoClieidang 
vom 14.6.57 die Fortsetzui^g abgelehnt. § 29 b'-stimmt, dass die 
m tgli ed.. ehalt endet, vieiiJi der Arzt aus dem -^ezirk der Aerztekammer 
Köln uUoscnoidet, es sei demi, daos die Vorau sse t^uii^en des § 28 
vorliegen, unter denen die Versicherujog ior tzgesetzt wird. Ich 
glaube zunächst^ du ss es Keinen ,^roosen ZweKJk hat, gegen die Ent- 
scheidung des L'hGr Düsselaorf anzugehen. Obgleich ich zugeben 
muss. dass adr die Ansicht d^s OLG Hüsseldcrf z.;eifelhaft erscheint 



einen anderen Staadpuiiit ein- 



glaub e ich ihcnt, dass das OLG: Köln 
nenmen würde. 

Ihr Fall liegt axn inoof ern beson^ ers, als die A-rztekammer 
oeit dem OütDber 19o5 die Veioicneruxigsbei träge .dd er oprucholos 
entgegen^^,eiiommen hat, Darin Könnte man iiach ^£reu uiid Glauben pine 
Gene]:imi.-,ung der Fortsetzung der Tii tgliedsachf t -erblicken Die^ 
Aerztekammer wird liatLlrlich dagegen einwenden, dass di e*Äasse 
die Ihre Beiträge entgegengenoirimeii hat, licht zustän:Ug ivar zur 
p^teilung einer solcnen Genehmigung. Ma n Kann nc.tiirlich v^-rsuchen 
den Standpunkt im Prozess^vege curch zuführen, was aber ziemlich ^ 
viel Geld kostet. 

Zum allermindestens bin ich ..b^r der Mei nui^g - und mit die- 
sem GtaiJdpu.ikt müsste man eigentlich, aug alle Fälle durchdrim-en- 
dass die seit Ihrer AUowaxJderung bezahlten Beträge /-urückp-^zahlt

üesteTn hcibe ich das Haus Li ndenthalglir tel 15 üb eriioramen. I>er 
^'ustand des Hauses is t loi t tler er Art und Güte, Ein -erheblicher 
und Kostspieliger ^ichadenhat sich ander Heizung herausgestellt. 
Als diese gestern - wie üblich- von einem -Fachmann gereinigt wer- 
den sollte, zeigte sich, dass di e Keizungsröhren im II . Stock teil- 



eise völlig eingerostet waren und erneuert Vv^erden müssen, ü^ 



as 



Gleiche scheint bei den Zufuhr ungsr Öhren im Jt^eller der Fall zu sein, 
hierüber werde ich morgen Gevvissheit erhalten, so bedauerlich, es 
ist, so muss diese Reparatur natürlich 4,em^cht erden, da die Ge- 
fahr des weiteren üinrostens der Heizung besteht, wenn die schad- 
haften Teile nicht ^Uogewechselt erden, Ein weiterer Rostschaden 
zeigtesicn an dem Seritkatsen eines V^' ,G . Ausserdem muss das Dach 
repariert werden. Die anderen no tivendigen Reparaturen sind- so- 
weit ich bi eher festgestellt habe, geringfügiger tetur und interes- 
sieren licht. Der schmerzlichste Punkt ist die Heizung, Ich habe 
die i]otvendigen Aufträge für die Reparaturen alsbald erteilt, damit 
das Haus zum 1,2. einzugsfertig ist, Sobald .^ich cie kosten der 
Reparatur übersehen lassen, werde ich Ihnen i^achricht geben, damit 
Sie bez, Herr Dr /-"amburger oder die ilrma L, & B, ( was schneller 

feht) die Genehmigung d ^r Devisenstelle zur Zahlung von 5U^ des 
e trag es beantragen.

hi ä).er Herr Salomon l 

Wie Ihne n b eita nnt ist, hat Ihr Herr iSchvvag^ mich neulich 
aufgesucht ixioß unter anderem mit mir eine Regelung darüber tref- 
fen '.sollen, zu welchem ivlietspreis er das Ihrer <jattin in ^emein- 

chaf t mi t seiner Frau gehörende haus b evv ohne n kann. Er dachte 
oich die Angele^,e oheit so , dass mit Riicitsicht darauf, dass Sie 
wohl auch eine gavisse Zeit unentgeltlich in dem üause ga«/ohnt haben, 
er aimäar auch Keine Mete zu zahlen braucht, sondern lediglich 
die laufenden UxKcaten trägt, -^ch habe ihm darauf erülärt, ^dass 
ich es für richtig halten würde, '^^ena diese x^L^gel e^.eijhei t direkt 
mit Ihnen bezw. Ihrer GaotLn vereinbart . erden »vürde, da ich nicht 
in der Lage bin, über derartige Di %e Vereinbarurj^en zu treffen. 
l^Ui'mehr Kommt heute ein ucnreib en vo n nerr q Dr .Aron, vo a dem ich 
Ih rien teil/veise Ab ^schrif t über sende . Ich glaube, dass die dort 
angeschrittene i'rage uuf Ihre Entscheidu% riich t ohne Einfluss 

sein kann. Es vvird wohl liicnts ajüd eres übri^ bleiben als die 
dort vor^eschlci^ene Repara tur machen zu laosen, offenbar meint 
herr Lr.Aron ./ohl mch t mit Unrecht, dass es sich ni er xiicht um 
laufende U nKo st en handelt, oOduss si e wohl von Jedem zur Hälfte 
zu tra4ien sind. Ich sehe aber üicht ein, vvarum Sie diese Kosten 
mi ttragen sollen, wenn Sie ^ar Keinen Ertrag aus dem hause haben. 
Ich bitte Sie also, mir Ihre A ersieht mö glichs t um^ eh end zu schrei- 
ben. Ich bemerke dazu, dass i^rau Dr J^±er, '^di e das haus bis 
jetzt b Brvohnt nat, monatlich RM 17u .- Lliete bezahlt hat; die Ußr- 
kosten haben im wesentlichen die Vermieter zu tragen gehabt.

für Il^e 'nid ■Idlth ein Affidavit zw c^ben.Ich wünsche aber l.die 

soll 



-v^rde 



Pra^e ,T«kl'irt v/ie juri-tlso^ das Affidavit formuliert 
da die H^inilie doch noch existiert.:-^, möchte ich wissen, ob Dein

wie die Bestimr un :en vom englischen Homeofice sind, aber in TT.S.A, 
hast Du auf den -^ra^ebo :en für "Kinwanderer zu beantworten, unter Eid, 
ob der A,: Pikant v/e,;en Nervenkrankheit in Behandlunci war.Es würde 
also die ;jrö3ten och.vieriKKeiten machen oder unmc3p:lich sein, ihm 
hier die Einwanderung-; zw ermö>7liohen.Im übrigen sind meine Be- 
merkun -en über Kdlth,diö nur von Sor^^e ein^^geben vmren, falsch 
verstanden worden, ich habe ledii^lich die '^ra -e auf.^ev;orfen,ob sie 
nicht für eine ,vur/:e i'iber van-^s/.eit zu Freunden von ■/illy nach Hol 
and ^ehen könnte, um sich zu erholen, da sie doch den körperlichen 
Anstren-'i- en ^^i^er en -11 ch^^n Ha^sam^eetellten in ke-^ner ^^^eise

nerlei Sorben machen. Ausserdem ist es für ein Aft'idavit ganz 
gleich ^ültirc ,:)b man die flrst )ap^r /^enom- en hat ^der ?iicht,da3

ter gegeben, Du weißt so -^\xt -vi« Ich, daß mir daran.s keine finanziell

Alice. Der .einzige \/ert von einem Af ''idavit-nit Ausnahme eines 
Affidavits für Dioh~daß wir ausstellen, ist der, die Verwandtschaft 
nachzuweisen. Da ich mit rr^einem kle-'nen und doch absolut 'uisich- 
erera Einkommen, keinerlei finanzielle Unterstützung; ^eben kann. 
Zur hlrluiterun,; will ich Dir sa;en,daß sowohl das Affidavit von 
uns und das fon Lisbeths Bchv/a.;er für sie nicht ausreichte ,son- 
aern noch ein Af*'idavit von einem wohlhabf^rid^m Fann erforderlich 
=var, dasselbe war doch auch bei Alex.Einen solchen zu finden v/ird 
J. leichter sein als uns, wir hab^-n uns für Lisbeth und virale andere 
ver^^eblich bemüht. Icf: habe Käthe l.aiich .^<e beten, unter Umsflnaen 
eine stelle für Dich in En-^^land zu finden, die , wenn es sein muß 
Dich bis zum t'bergan^^ aufnehmen köuite.Sie schreibt, das wäre wesent 
lieh schwi«ri.^er als die Sor^^e für Edith und Ilse, sie hatte bisher 
nicht einmal i}ire ':'anT,en herüber bekomnen.Das 2 Exemplar des Affi- 
davits ist nicht aus '/er-:esslichkeit geschickt, es wird uns an den 



zustandigen Stellen hier gesagt, daß das Ko^isul t 2 Ausfertigun^^en 
verlangt. Ich hoffe, daß Du verstehst , daß all die-.e Erörternng^n 'zu 
Eurer Aufklärung dienen, damit die Unr.ihe und Nervositit nicht noch 
getsei >:ert wird. Ich glaub-, d'U^ in dieser Hituatioa Klarheit in 

jeder 'feis erforderlich ist. Die Yerbinduncen sind jetzt sehr sohle

It may reasonabl/ be expected thrt the present v;ar 
v.'ill erxd In the not too i;istant future with the coraplete 
victory of the Allles and the total collapse of Germany» The 
dov;nfall of the Nazi System will leave the German people in 
a State of utter confiasion, not only ; olitically and economic- 
all,', but also ir. the field of culture and science and espec- 
ially of education. In such a State of mind the German yo Jth 
v;ill looic for guidance and Vvill be susceptible to reeducation. 
Those German scholars and ^oniversity professors who will have 
been left will probably try to Join in making workable the 
reeducation program now under convlderation by the t^overnments 
of tue great deraocraoies and their varioiis agencies« 

In the field of social sciences a special task 
will arise^ naniely, to make German beachers and students 
familiär witn the Anglo-American contributions to taese 
sciences durlng the last twenty-five years. This will certain- 
ly be an excellent Ta to s-^^read ceraocratic ideas, No province 
of human thoaght reflects democracy at v/ork more clearly than 
the way in which problems of the human society, economy and 
politics as well as philosophy and psychology have been 
approached b/ the grent Anglo-American masters In taese fields, 

As a matter of fact, Anglo-Saxon literature of 
social sciences was with a fev/ exceptions never thoroughly 
st udied in German speaking countries. The reasons are mani- 
fold. First, the study of modern languages in so~called 
academic circles in Germany was rather poor. Secondly, the 
German libraries, ceficient in funds since World V'ar I, hsve 
neither bee^ able nor willing to provide sufficient books and 
magazines» Thirdly - and this is the most important reason - 
even in pre--^itler times G^rmen social science continued to 
work along the lirE s of its own old established traditions and 
die not much care to become acquainted with the Performances 
of other nations. To the contrary, these Performances were, 
without having been studied, treated with distrust if not with 
disflain as unphilosophical, materialistic, dilettantic; whereas, 
second an;' t ird-rate works of Germ-n origin were regarded with 
unjustified complacency. It Is obvious that Nazi educators did 
their best to withhold from the German students any knov/ledge 
of %he way in which social sciences are taught and studied in 
Anglo-Ai-ierican countries or to deliver entirely distorted accounts 
of their Ideas. 

Thus it comes aboat that philosophers like John Dewey, 
Peirce, G. H. Mead, Royce are practically unkno^Mi in Germany and 
that even William James' importance never was acknowledged. In 



- g - 



the field of sociology the perforraances of Thomas, Znaniecki, 
Lynd, Cooley, ?c\rk and many others never came to the knovvledge 
of üerman scholars. Tne same holds true for the fl^^ld of 
th'?ory and philosophy and probably psychology of law. A iittle 
bit better but -ot at all satisfactor/ Is the Situation in 
economic literature. 

It seems important, ther^ fore, to prepare trustworthy 
accounts of the present State of social sciences in Anglo- 
American countries. Thi:> could be done by oditing a set of books 
in the German language to be publlshed and öistributed on the 
üerman market as soon as circumstances permit. The form of 
presentation shouid follow the manner of similar üerman collec- 
tions: Not toxt books in the Americen s^-nse, but readible 
accounts desit^ned for both students and te-xchers. As to the 
content of the books, an attempt shouid be made to work out 
especially those pointö oi' view which .leve h^mdled In pre-Httler 
German literature. Philosophy, psychology, sociology, %conomics, 
govern-jent, science oi lav/ could each be handled in a separate 
small voluine of, say, ^50 to 500 pages, euch volurae containing 
an tntroductory cnapter and a series of accounts of the Anglo- 
American theories in the respective fields, giving not only 
results obtairied but also methods applied under special consid- 
eration of the educational, political and soc * ologiccil setting 
^ich made this way of approach possible and fruitful. 

The Suggestion, to publlsh these >x)oks in the German 
language, soems to be essential in order to reach the broadest 
possible public of students and teachers. Mo-eover, the German 
Invasion has certainly widened the geographic area within which 
the German language is read and understood. The liberated 
nations v^ill certainly -vvelcorae the opoortunity to use these 
books for thelr educational tasks ahead and to translate them, 
if neces_ary, into their idiom.

no other Institution within the United

the same time the most competent kno^jeledge 
the same problems were handled in pre-war 
Europe. They also haVe the ability necessary 
endering of Anglo-American thought the 

for German readers. 



The concluslon of the present memorandum is the 
Suggestion that the Graduate Faculty of the Nev: School shouid 
embark no-iY apon the preparation of a set of books as hereinbefore 
outlined. The books shouid be edited by the faculty, the heads

Professor Albert Salomon, 

The New School for Social Research, 

66 Y/est 12th Street, 

NEV^ YORK CITY. 



Dear Professor Salomon, 



Mr Almond has perhaps already spoken to you oi the plan which I have had 
since the completion of my Mannheim translation,to translate so!ne oi Max Vyeber»s 
essays dunng the coming year. I hope that it will be possible ior us to cooper- 
ate m a manner which I shall indicate below. 

I believe that in view of existing conditions in the interests of the 
reading public and the interests of the publishers it would be quite wise to be- 
gm wiLh the publication of about three of Max Weber» s methodological essays in 

^qt.r^'^V^'^f ""^u ^Zm ^i!^^^f P^g^s- '^he three essays I have in mind are the 

Sinn der Wertf reihcit", the «Objectivität" and "Wissenschaft als Beruf" which 
should obtain a rather .dde audience, both with the more sophisticated non-acadpmic 
public and American and Enfilish social scientists and philosochers. It seems to 
me extremely advisable that the essays should have a rather detailed introduction 
concernmg the problems of the world in which Max Weber lived and their continuitv 
r^^^r"* P^^^^nt P^?blfms, and also some biograrhical material on the man himself 
and the nature of his interests. The text of the essays should I think be accom- 
panied by rather detailed notes which will explain the Intention of the essays at 
HnL^"^^ ^^^-I ''^""^ written as well as the spcific references in the text to authors, 
doctrines and currents of thought. Such an introduction and e^ditorial material 
are of fundamental importance in that they will p:ive the non-GGrmsn reader the 
necessary background for the proper understanding of the essavs. I^or this task 
i can thm^ of no one better equipped than yourself and the volume certainly would 
be made more useful and valuable if you 7/ould agree to be its editor. 

This sort of volume should certainly serve to arous^ a lively interst in 
this work and 1 think that it could be folloived not vcry long after' bv a trans- 
lation of the 'Typen der Herrschaft" and "Politik als Beruf" in one volume. In 
l ^?M ^^■'■^^ ^^ '''^■^^ ^® possible to issue most of the "Wirtschaft und Gesell- 
schait m a number of more or less self-contained volumes of about three to four 
hundred pages each. I hope that you find my plan worthy of consideration and 
tnat you will let me know of your decision quite shortly. 

Concerning the speed with which the translation could be executed, I am 
coniident that I could complete a rather satisfactory first draft of the whole 
thmg by Christmas, and of "Wissenschaft als Beruft' which I think should be used 
IS a sample for the {)ublishers, bv the end of October. I am thoroughly familiär 
.th the essays and do not expect to encounter any serious dif f icultie's. 

^ Whatever your decision may be on this matter, I should like at this time 
to invite you to collaborate on a Yearbook of Sociology which a colleague of mine 
and I are planning to publish within the next year. We are interested in concreto 
systematic articles about thirty pages in length and would welcome a contribution 
from you on any subject you care to work on. If you would be willing to collaborate 
m this undertakmg ferhaps you will be good enough to reply when you write to me 
concerning the Max Weber volume. '' ^'^'^^ ^^ ^^ 

V/ith many thanks and sincerest göod wishes, I am

Prof .Albert Salomon, 

Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, 

66 V/est 12th Street, 

lew yopk,N.Y. 





My dear Prof, Salomon: 

I regret that I hKve not answered your friendly letter 
sooner,but I have been taken up with many things which needed immediate 
attention,and furthermore ,was able,only today^ to have the opportunity to 
talk oVer our collective undertaking with Professor Frank H.Knight whose 
opinion I hold in the highes t esteem. 

To proceed iiranediately with the question of the T/eber trans- 
lationtl am not quite certain what you referred to v/hen you state your willing- 
ness^to work with me in this inatter"presupposed that the terms of the publication 
pemit me to realize my collaboration." I want to assure you that I am very 
anxious to have your collabofcation and consider it quite' indispensable in help- 
ing to make Max V/eber intelligible to^ßle Americanreaders. I hope that you 
have no misgivings about working together with mef^ any rate,I hope that you u//// 
4^ find it possible to enter into collaboration with me. 

„„ Concerning yo^r suggestions as to the inclusion of the 

über einige Kategorien..." and the "Methodische Grundlagen. .."iit is my opinion 
and that of Professor Knight also,as well as that of several colleagues with whom I 
have dAscussed the question, that theae eosays should be left alone for the time 
being,since they are tmong the least generallSr intelligible o| Max Webers works. 
For the first volume to be published,! think that it would be advisable(as does 
Professor KhightJ^ to stick to the three essays which I originally proposed,i.e. , 
'Wertfreiheit", "Objektivität ", and "Wissenschaft als Beruf", with the latter as 
the first essay of the book,since it is the easiest to read. My .reason^ for not 
reacting so favorably to the inclusion of the other two essayi',äS«,ihat while I '• 
myself regard them most highly,! think that they are much too specialized and 
technical to have even the slighlly general appeal that the other three essays 
would have. Y/e must remenber that in approaching commercial publishers,we must 
not discourage them by presenting something which is absolutely sure to be a 
poor commercial Investment, A-hich I feel quite certain the more specialized writings 
of M.W. would be at this time.It is true that most worthwhile books are commercial 
failures and that publishers are enabled to carry them only thru the profits which 
they make on poorer and more populär books, but i'f one book by & not very widely 
known author proves to be e complete loss^financially,the publishers will be veyy 
wary about bringing out other books by the same author in the future. Therefore 
since we are anxious to bring before the English and inerican intellectual 
public, qiMfce a few more volumes of M.ViT. »s work,we should begin w4th the book 
which is the most apt of all his writings to have a general appeal at this time, 
najjiely,those essays which deal with the quite well known problem of scientific 
detachment and objertivity and their felationsA^o political judgments and activity^ 
This Problem has been JgljÄ» vridely discus^ed a^aong the more literate,,lay public 
in the United States and England and evenj*such magazines as "Harpers the "New 
Republic"etc.^ Mpd ifence,this book could find a relativily broad response, and the 
general interest and discussion of Max Weber would then serve to convince the 
publisher of the practicability of «iking a further Investment. What is more,if 
the first book elicits a goodly amount of favorable comment,the publisher will 
leel justified in bringing out the other works of Mex lieber, even if theydo not 
ptove to be commercial successes. '

As5>umng that we will be successful with the first volume ,1 would then 
recommend that we work on the Political Sociology,i.e. ,the "Typen der Herrschaft" 
essays and "Politik als Beruf". FollÄÄnp; that,I think that the Religions- 
soziologie "in two volumes, and then,after the classic character of Max Weber *s 
accomplishment has become obvious,wr could bring out the "Soziolgische Grund- 
begriffe" and the "Soziolgische Grundkategotien des V/irtschaitens" together tüH 
ti^ the o^her essays in' Wissenschafts lehre*. These are the items which have thw 
least general appeal of any of his work, and especially in America,where the 
level of sophistication,aside fron a small number of soholars,is so low,we 
might frighten many people away from reading Mex Weber, i# they were to get 
their first impressions of him from such a rigorous acnd formal work. 

Of course,all plans forthe volumes to foBbw the first, run well into the 
future ,and we shall deal with them as they are encoi^^ered. Meanwhile I think 
that we should consider the first volume against some such perspective. 

I have already begun tovsark on the essays I mentioned and hope to have a good 
bit done in a rough form by Christmas whfen I shall be in Ilew York. At that 
time we will be able to go into further detail about out edit6rial plans ,and 
above all,to enter into firsi? hand negotiations with the publishers(l have in 
mind particulary Macmillans). 

^. It would be very fine if you could discuss the whole matter with Dr. Johnson 
j^^^p^ write to me any recommendations which he has to make on any aspect of the 
undertaking. Professor Knight has offered to use whatever influence he can 
muster with the publishers,and if Dr. Johnson were to do th,e same ,it would be 
very helpful 

For' yourvery kind offer to collaborate in our projected Yearbook,I am 
very grateful. As I remember,Prof .Llannheim^in his article in"Politica''I,l, 
referred to an unpublished Mss. which you had prepared on the "Freundschafts- 
kult". Such a subject,treated from a sociological point of view,would be a very 
interesting contribution, and is very much the sort of thing we would like to 
have .Will you please let us know your reaction to this2 

I have not yet kad time to read your article on De Tocqueville and look 
forward most anxiously to doing so within the next few days. 

Will you please write me soon,and have no reluctance to make whatever 
objections to my sugf;estions you think appropriate? I am afraid that this letter 
has a rather dognatic tone,but I hope that you will not look upon it as such, and will 
feel free to speak as frankly as you wish. 

With most friendly greetings and best wishet,I am 



Yours,

Dear Slmcns, 



For years there is a discussion going on in the 



books and Journals vr ich deal .vith oritloißm in the literary 

fields as Virginia ^^uart'srly ,Kenyon Retue , Partisan Revueet« 
that a scientific trciiaing .f th- future reviev/ers is highly de- 
s irable. Norman beerst or and hia frlnds have publisried some years 
af^o a bock on "Llerary ::.cholarship"v,/i-iio>i develops the thesis that 
a hiM2:her eduoaticn ohould be reauired for the future critios in 

all fi3ldß of llteralure, 
For tfiia reason I eubmlt a Suggestion wnich might be of some in- 
terest for tae New oO;iocl. There are aoüie inembers in the !?oole 
Libre(Andr3 ßpirö, Benoit-Lovy) , frinds of tha New Sohool (Auden, 
Mark van Deren, Kazln) jir.embrsrs of tlie Qraduate I'aoulty (Riezler, 

v/ertheimer,üalomon)v/ho would make it poscible to organize oasily 
a Qraduate Sc-'^ool for litf rary sciolarship 
whlch would meet with all nocessary roquirements. 
I ^ave not the slighteßt idoa v/hetber it .vould be possible to 
find organizationfl,individuals or instituti ons ^illing to support 
fin noially a sohool llke that« However I believo that r^a.Roose- 
velt and ^ür. VIaoLeis?i, lark van Deren and Douglas Bush v;ill approve 
of this plan and .^lelp it to materialize« 

I enclose » tentative ourrioulum for tnis sohool. It you think it 
worthwhil« disousßing thla idea will you be kind encugh to subralt 



it to Dr. Johnson and rUss Mayer.

Dear Salonion : 

as Strauss, v/ho is at present secretary of Social Research, may have 
told you, your article on Gerinan militcArisra has beeii accepted for 
publication anc v ill possibly be publishec in the Moveinber issue. 
I iieread yo^or essay with great interest anc mace a fe\. rernarks 
vvhich ar-e of no con£;ec,upnce anc importance. Vlss I^ebiker ma;^- have 
sent them to you. Bat in case ehe has failed to do so^here they 
are. 1. I shoulc suggest that you acd to the footnote in which 
i«'ried»s study is quoted, that this study was unaertaken in connection 
with the Pe;-:ce Research Project of the Faculty, 

2. '»I v/as a Nazi Flyer'» - it ma^' be advisable not to auote 

this book: T have seen that somc reviewers intimated 'in 

a hidden way that the book ma^^ be a fake. 

b and 4 are personal opinions vvhich mrxmiX rpfer to y;jr essay 
as a wholo. Th'^:^' r)o not. invol-"'© c^ngro-esti ons ߀^ changes on 
your Part, but you may be interested in having them anyv/ay. 
It seems to me that the introductory paia of yoiur ar-ticle is 
not w-ell connected, or rather^is not too closely connected with 
the second pax't. The first D«rt t« on milit.ary institutions 
the secnnri onp on m-ilitary "vai^ips'«. Tt is not, yjim evident/ 
that D---t T Iß npcessarv for the understancu...g of nart II.

1"^ v^at are the nain annroachp? to tTie nroLlern of Value 

in the modom discussion, and vhat are the main nropositions

in his opinion that such a means of orientation woulc. be 
of great didactical value to the students.

Dear Doctor: 

I am pleased to enclose your fire and burglary policies effective 
for a period of one year from May 1. I would call to your atten- 
tion that the burglary policy does NOT cover on jewelry or fürs 
and if at any time you wish this policy extended to cover on 
such articles, please advise us. I hope you never have any loss 
under these policies, but if you do, please be sure to advise us 
so that we may properly protect your interests. 

I had hoped v/e could get together very soon but now Denny has 
the mumps so we will have to wait a few v/eeks. As soon as he is 
all right, Mrs. Stern will be in touch with you* Luckily he does 
not have a serious case. 




Kindest regards. 



Sincerely yours.

DARTMOUTH COLLEGE 

MANÖVER. N. H. 



DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY 



April 25, 1938 





Professor Albert Salomon 
3212 Cambridge Avenue 
New York City 

Dear Professor Salomon: 

De. Fritz Kaufmann has written me that there is a possibility 
of bis securing a professorship on the" graduate faculty of the New 
School of Social Research. I truly hope that something can be done 
to materialize this possibility. 

Dr. Kaufmann, as you will know if you have met him, is a man 
of mature and sensitive intelligence. He lectured here in Pebruary 
and did a brilliant job, eliciting more than an hour of lively dis- 
cussion after the -lecture's close. Since the Dartmouth Department 
of Philosophy has already absorbed one German exile, Professor Eu^en 
Rosenstock-Huessy, there is no possibility of its absorbing another, 
particularly one whose main interests lie in so nearly the same field. 
And in any case, Dr. Kaufmann sho\ild be s teered toward a graduate 
faculty rather than toward an undergraduate College: while his intell- 
igence and power of sympathy would in time surely enable him to make 
a satisfactory adjustment to the American \indergraduate mind, it is 
in graduate work that I should expect his scholarship, his German 
profundity, and his discipline in phenoraenological method to show up 
to best advantage. 

I may add that since Dr. Kaufmann has recently lectured at 
several other Colleges and universities, including Harvard, Yale, 
lÄiiversity of Chicago, Western Reserve, and lÄiiversity of North Carolina, 
he is becoming by degrees more widely and favorably known in the higher 
edacational circles of America. 



Tours faithfully, 

Philip VVheelwright

Dear I.!r« Snlomon: 

I am very nrrateful to you for your essay on Too|ueville 
and your kindly cornrnents on my book» As you have disoemed I v;as 
wTiting in conscious antipathy to the narrow secularism,really 
materialism which has ruled American philosophy and still so very 
lar^ely rules it. "/hat I had in mind at the time of writing was 
an existential study which should attempt to focus the systematic 
thought of the man within the concreto frame^-ork of the historic 
setting,rather than ipmorincr the latter or relef>ating it to a separate 
"biographic** chapter as is the comnon practice. The result in this 
partcular case may have been scxnething of a jumble,as my reviewers 
su^gestfbut I am utterly oonvinced of the necessity of bringing 
philosophy together v/ith life,- which is what I suppose you mean by 
a concreto or sociological i)hilosophy. 

I have never studied Toc iueville,but I found your essay 
most stimulating. Since writing my book I have tried to follow 
Barke ley's ex- mple in retuming to classic philosophy,- including 
St. Thomas, and have becorae more convinced than I then was,of the 
ranf^e of substantial structural truth v;hich lies at its core. 
TTevertheless I agree v/ith you that the widest perspective open to us 
is that of concreto history itself v/hich remains opa /ue exoept to such 
dim lip-ht as the theologioal concepts can cast upon it. I do not 
think we differ essentially here,thou,^h I should not us- the term 
"scholastic" as a term of reproach. 

With retard to "socialism" I suppose ther© is a real 
difference of opinion. Here I suppose my "rationalism'» asserts 
itself afrainst what would seem to me to be too great an emphasis upon 
freedom in the sense of "spontaneity". ''Jhy is it not possible to 
separ^ite the social program of socialisra frorn the general materialian 
with which as it seems to rae at s^rry rate it has become accidentally 
associated in modern times? The great social Leviathan is with us 
now anyv/ay,c'^nd our only hope is that of seeing it here and there to a de- 
gree,subordinated to cultural and religious ends. There is less hop« 
it seems to me of taming this great beast under a decadent liberal disguise 
th3in if he is allowed to develop more naturally into v;hat he is. It is 
a faint hope I admit.uut I go on hoping. I should greatly enjoy talting 
with you any time you happen to be in Cambridge. 



Yours sincerely.

Lieber Herr Dr. Salomon, 

mit herzlichem Danke gebe ich Ihnen 
beifolgend die drei Aufsätze zurück, die Sie mir freundlicher 
Weise überlassen haben. 

Ich habe sie mit grossem Interesse gele- 
senjzur Zeit bin ich noch mit der Lektüre des Tooueville-Buches 
beschäftigt. 

(Kann ich das Buch gelegentlich in der 
New School oder an anderer Stelle in Manhatten abgeben ?) 

Das ToQueville-Thema erscheint mir überaus 
wicht ig;hier liegt der selten gegebene Fall vor,dass man auf 
einen Mann und ein "Werk hinweisen könnte, die zum bedeutendsten 
europäischen Geistesgut gehören, und ?.'0 zugleich eine enge Ver- 
bindung zu diesem Lande besteht. 

Ich möchte mich,sov/ie ich ein wenig Zeit 
finde, mit der Toaueville-Literatur vertraut machen, die bisher 
in den U. S.A. erschienen i5t.:!?ür meine erste Verlagsliste käme 
ein Toqueville-Buch ohnedies nicht in Präge, da ich diese Liste 
nicht öt mit einem weiteren historischen Buch belasten darf. Aber 
eine solche Publikation ist ja nicht an einen bestimmten Srscheifii 
nungstermin gebunden. 

Mit nochmaligem Dank für die mir übergebenen 
Schriften begrüsse ich Sie als 

Ihr sehr ergebener

Dear Dr. Saloinon: 




Thank you for your kind note. 

I thlnk that positivism is dead. Sornetiines 
a sad event is kept froni the knowledge of the imcediate rel- 
atives, ihat perhaps is what is happening in sociology. 

As you know i am very much interested in Mrs . 
Wyler, and am delighted to hear of your ver> high opinion of 
her work. but jou must also know that it is extreme ly un- 
liKely that a jewess would be appo^nted to a post in any other 
place than a cit^ College, x knov/ of none who was ever ap- 
poinred to a post in philosophy, there or elsewhere, wi throne 

exception änd that was a temporary positxon xn a small mid- 

western ccllege. xt is a sad state of affairs, and there is 
no reason why it should be permanent. Somebody must breaK the 
tradition, and x don't see why it shouldn't be Mrs.WJiler. But 
still there is the fact that she has very little chance, no 
matter how good a book she may wrxte. x have her constantly 
in mind and when an opportunity offers x shall do my best; but 
at present x have little hope. 

i am delighted to hear that you are tr^ing to 
bring sociology bacK into the frame of philosophy. xf x can 
help, please do not hesitate to call on me .

•^ But they will come to night. A's father has implored me to sweeten -f-he 
Pill for them. I said: which pill? He» U3t A. I said; Goodness, have 
you not yet given up this idea? Fe said he believes R does not mean to 
go. I : the worse if they are encouraged. ^-lehl. I keep this letter until 
to morrow and shal^ add my impressions, but I am rather frigh'ened. 
I shall send ,you as a manuscript the letters of an advnntures?^, please 
after reading band themj?! on to Peter and ^'^113''. I am afraid the3/v7ill 1 
be disappointed with a letter, his father vjrote recentl37 in regard to J 
summ.er pla.ns. But it seems verv difficult to get forei^n ^^^rev, Jtalv 
seems blocked sine e »^anuary, and I think they have also ot>"er difficultie 
or are afraid of getting them . Please teil him, I cannot ^'rite yet, as 
I am kept rather bus3^ at the moment, but inform them that his parents 
attitude has som^ething to do with the shipping line, where hfesifather in 
well known, confirming the mtifTA^ Ingrid received. Cr an3A'';ay inform.ing 
him that no guarantee possible. And this is 11 for to da3''. Yes, it would 
be nice Qf after peters perusal of t e letters of the adventuress you

Dear j'riend Al'bert - 



,^,^^vjr^Q^ 21, 19 53 



I hope you will forgive rrie for not having / , 
v/ritten sooner, but when one is travelling -around 
this w?y time goes by as though on v/ings, \Vhen I 
think 0-? it, it doesn^t seera possible th-.t four 
montbs have gone "by since I left !Tew York« I have 
been moTiv^g irora place to place, and even this 
present address will uiobably not la>^t more than 
tv;o or three v;eeks, as I expect to be going South 
soon. I can arrange tobhave mall forwarded from 
here, liovvever. 

In liJngl'-nd we found that raoving around with a 
baby has m^ny di fficulties, and finally, v/hen I 
left lor Switzeland, Piose took the baby ba,ck to 
America. !^^ow, at 3 montbs, little Susan has 
crossed t'ie ocean by air and by sea and just ke3ps 
on eating ?.nd growing v/herever she isj It's a bat 
lonely having my famlly, small as it is, away - 
but lÄm convinced that it was the right move. 
Even though modern conveniences are tjesä much more 
easily available in Zürich than in England, it is 
nevertheless very difficult to find a ± good 
furnished apartment for a short period at a 
moderate rental. 

There was one good development while I was 
in England, and that is that the firm of Routledge 
and Kegan Paul purchased the ri^i;hts oq my book 
for British publication. Ihey will bring it out 
in the f j=»11. Herbert :^ead who is ^^4. di:-ector there 
read it and became nulte enthus-^Mi' about it, so that 
I bad the opportunity o? raeetl/lrr hi^ r;hile I was 
in England, y^ 

I ha.ve now seen C G jung several times and 
have met most of the important people in the cicle.

Despite the fpct that bis bealth, bas been very 

poor lately, Jung bas given me quit e a concentration 
of attention. In getting it ready for publication 
I bad changed about balf of tbe original tff 
di ssert'tion wbicb he saw, - the first and last 
cbapters mainly - and a' ded quite a bit. Jle noticed 
the cbangeä and remerrTmred tbem in detail from last 
May wben he read it, and in reading the cornplete 
set of galley sbeets no^^; be 'ce d an extrenely af- 
firmative reaction, As a result I bave bad a good 

reception her«^ and am g findine^, rny st^^y in Zurieb 
ve y interesting and very busy. 

The reports that you bave beard that Jung is 
a tremendously ^^s impressive bumrn being are 
absolutely true. He is füll of Cbarisraa, and that 
is a very important factor in understandi ng sopb 
sides of bis v;ork. Don»t fear tbougbj I haV^also 
bad tb4 oppo^^tunity to obs erve that the ^od^s feet 
aie made of clay, Dicid that keeps my perspective in 
bslance. 

I tbink you will 1b interested in the fact 
tb-t Prof. Gocdwin ^J7atson of Colunbia bas dritten 
the Introduction to my book. I learad about it 
only last ;7oek. I don't know bim persrfiltr, and 
in fact I bave to admit tb-^t I know bardly anvthing 
about bin at all. Do you? The book is due to be 
released I tbink in Tay. 

^v .]"<-^I>^ tba^y j^öu-^h^re had'^i=r^"g^^ 

Winter, '\nd that your bealfb is good. I would likd 
Very mucb'-^to receive a line from you, and bope 
that you will not hold my slowness in writing a^-. inst 
mo. This has '^been and is continuing to be a most 
bectic and even^ful adventure for ne. I pm by 
no means an exoe.Aienced world tr avoller as you know, 
but wben one gets around Europe it is certainly 
necessary to iearn f asti 

My very best wisbes to LTrs. S. and to Ilannah
