About this Item

Wilbur responds to Claire's letter about the FAA that is seeking permits to built a tower around Wilbur's town: "thank you mightily for bringing the matter to the attention of that good man Mr. [Sylvio] Conte [Member of Congress]. At the moment, I don't know where things stand: Worthington has followed Cummington's lead in voting not to have the tower in their town ." etc. All three letters concern Wilbut and Claire's involvement with stopping the FAA tower. Included also is a 2 page TLS from Congressman Silvio Conte (referred to in the Wlbur letter) about the FAA tower, a photo copy of a TLS from Claire to Wilbur, a photocopy of a letter from Wilbur to Conte's chief of staff, Roy Basler and a carbon of a letter from Basler to Wilbur. In all, two typed letters and an autograph letter from Wilbur plus allied material. Richard Purdy Wilbur (born March 1, 1921) is an American poet and literary translator. He was appointed the second Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress in 1987, and twice received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, in 1957 and again in 1989.
