Here is a piece of our United States of America history in an original telegram from the library of Senator Glen Hearst Taylor, 1904-1984, Senate Years of Service: 1945-1951, Democrat; from Walter Francis White. It is in perfect condition and I can give the provenance upon request. Walter Francis White (July 1, 1893 - March 21, 1955) was an American civil rights activist who led the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for almost a quarter of a century. He directed a broad program of legal challenges to segregation and disfranchisement.
