Could you help me with some information about
Birmingham? Robert Penn Warren is doing a book, “Who
Speaks for the Negro?”, which we will publish, about
civil rights. He suspects that the main Birmingham newspapers
are owned by Cox, who is from the North. Do you
know if this is true? Can it be substantiated? We would
greatly appreciate the information inasmuch as it is
important to one of Warren’s theses in the book.
With all best wishes from Gay and me to you and
your family for a wonderful Christmas.
