U N I V E R S I T Y OF M AR Y LAN D C C o f B u sin e ss u sin e ss O r g a n iz a t io n olleg e B and P u b l ic and A A ollege Pa r k March 2, 1950 d m in ist r a t io n d m in ist r a t io n Mr. Marriner Eccles Board of Governors Federal Reserve System Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Eccles: I purposely delayed writing to you to express our appreciation for your excellent address to our students on February 15, until 1 had an opportunity to learn the reaction of our students and faculty members. Practically every department on the College Park campus was represented. That explains why so many people were turned away. Incidentally, 654 students and faculty members were in attendance. I received telephone calls from faculty representatives of the Agri cultural College, Journalism, Education and Arts and Science compli menting me for bringing you to the University. They were impressed with the enthusiasm and sincerity of your address and were particu larly surprised that you could keep a subject of that type at the students’ level. The students were very enthusiastic in their class discussions on Thursday and Friday following the talk* I have enclosed a copy of our student paper which carries a report of your speech. While the student reporter was rather "wild" in some of his statements, 1 don't believe any harm will result. Again let me thank you for this discussion. With kindest regards, Sincerely, Lionel W. Thatcher, Head of Department LWT/mm
