Dr. Albert Einstein, Chairman Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists 90 Nassau Street Princeton, New Jersey

Dear Dr. Einstein:

In the event the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists has in mind appointing an Executive Director to further the education and promotional work of the Committee, I would appreciate being considered for such a position.

Enclosed herewith is an autobiographical sketch which I prepared a few months ago in connection with an application for an executive position on the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. While this biographical sketch speaks for itself with respect to my education and experience, may I supplement that state-ment with respect to its specific application to a position with the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists.

Public Relations Experience

In several of the positions outlined in the enclosed state-ment, it was a part of my post to carry on extensive public relations with all types of groups, organizations and prominent individuals. For example, when I was Executive Director of the publicly-owned-and-operated Port of Seattle, I was constantly called upon to contact chambers of commerce, business organizations, influential labor organizations, farmers' organizations, and other important community groups.

When I held an executive position in the Business Office of The New York Times, I traveled pretty much over the territory East of the Mississippi River contacting chambers of commerce, community development organizations, national trade associations, and public utilities. In the course of this I had entree to some of the leading business executives in the highly industrial Eastern area.
