Dr. S. E. Mezes to Mr. Walter Lippmann
Dear Mr. Lippmann : I have prepared a memorandum, which I enclose, giving a rough and approximate outline of the subjects to be dealt with in The Inquiry.5 I have included only those which seem to be most urgent and am sending the outline to you for your consideration and suggestion when we next meet. Naturally, it only can embody a general scheme which, if finally accepted, should be kept in mind in prosecuting individual inquiries, but should not be allowed to interfere with the variations in treatment which the nature of each inquiry, and even to some extent the personality of each inquirer, would naturally render desirable. The outline is an attempt to summarize the more important points of agreement that resulted from our various conferences.
I think we made good progress at our meeting on Thursday, and have no doubt that The Inquiry will continue satisfactorily. I am sending copies of the memorandum to the other gentlemen who were present at the meeting.
- Attached to the file copy of this letter are two memoranda, which are here printed as enclosures 1 and 2.↩
