About this Item

This long-time rabbi at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel (Philadelphia) from 1949 to 1979 was the first Jewish chaplain to obtain flag rank in the U.S. armed forces when he was promoted to Rear Admiral in the Chaplains Corps in 1975, having entered the Navy in 1944; a noted historian of American Jewish history, he is best remembered for the 1951 classic "American Jewry in the Civil War." TLS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Philadelphia, PA, 1952 April 10. Addressed to CARL HAVERLIN (1899-1985), noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar, radio pioneer and president of Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI). Very good. Korn had asked Haverlin, a founding member of the Civil War Round Table of New York, to help him organize a Civil War Round Table or Lincoln Fellowship group in Philadelphia, but Haverlin wasn't available. "It's awfully good of you to suggest someone else from your group. I have never met Boyd Stutler [the John Brown scholar] but have had some correspondence with him. Fletcher Pratt, of course, I know by reputation. I am sure that either would do well, although I am not sure whether any one of them knows as well as you the organizational problems or the difficulty in creating programs." Handsome full signature. Haverlin's pencilled-but-erased notes on his response run down the right margin. Unusual Judaica item. Bookseller Inventory # 28250
