Dear Dr. Pauling:
I have just received a letter from my husband, Dalton Trumbo, who tells me he will
be eligible for parole next month. It is necessary however, to have a parole employer
and a parole adviser. In Dalton's letter to me he suggested that he would like very
much to have you for his parole adviser, and I hope you will find it possible to do
As I understand it, the parole adviser is given monthly reports which have to be filled
out by the parolee and approved and mailed to the U. S. Probation Officer by the parole
adviser, and that is all.
As you must realize, I am very anxious to have him home again and hope you will let
me know as soon as possible of your decision, and when I can see you, if you decide
that you will be so kind as to do this.
(Mrs.) Dalton Trumbo
