UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND COMMERCE EVENING SCHOOL September 13, 193? The Honorable Marriner S. Eccles Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board Washington, D. C. Dear Sir: As you will remember, you donated your honorarium of |300.00 as a speaker for our Business and Pro fessional Men's Group to the University to be used for scholarship purposes in the Evening School. For a long time we have wanted to encourage able and worthy students in the night high schools to continue their education at night. There are three night high schools ih Cincinnati so we divided the money into three annual awards of $35.00 each, to run for three years. The high school principals were asked to select three outstanding students who would not be able to continue with their studies without this help. We thought you would be interested in the enclosed clipping from this morning’ Enquirer, since it has s a picture of two of the boys selected this past year. May we thank you again for donating this money? As you can see, it has possibilities of doing a great amount of good. Sincerely yours V. H. Drufner, /J Director of Evening and Extension Courses 7HD:DAL enc# September 27, 1937* Mr. V. H.
