On the Banks of the Rhine,
Germany - 20 March 1945

Dear Prof,
The February "Bulletin" is at hand, and the news of your leaving Wagner, Prof, comes as a terrible jolt. I know you must be doing the right thing, but I hate to think of the college without you. I hope it won't mean a return to the inept presidents that preceded you.
As a son of Wagner, I am grateful for what you have done for the school. You preserved its old ideals of high scholarship and ethics, yet gave the college a new vitality that made it even a finer institution. I am also grateful to you,

[Page 2]

Prof, for all you have done for me personally. The counsel you have given me, and the encouragement, have been most helpful.
I hope that your new job will not prevent you from spending time on Staten Island. Both Fay and I would like to have the pleasure of your friendship after the war.
I hate to see you go - but the best of luck in your new work.
Cordially,
Bob Olwig
