William Howard Taft to Jane Addams, April 15, 1912


April 15, 1912.

My dear Miss Addams:

I am taking the liberty to inquire if, in your judgment, Miss Julia C. Lathrop would accept the newly created position of Director of the Children's Bureau. Do you not think she has the special qualities, the special training, and the administrative ability which make her preeminently fitted for the building up of the Bureau on right lines?

Sincerely yours,

W H T [signed]

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Illinois.
