Honorable Robert Moses, Executive Officer
New York City World's Fair Commission
The World's Fair of 1940
Flushing, New York

Dear Mr. Moses:

I have been informed that some of the Fair material may be available for a gift to educational institution. Some members of our staff have formulated the enclosed list of materials which would be very useful to us. Because of a restricted budget we have not been able to purchase many things which are really essential.

We shall be very grateful to you for any of the items on the enclosed list which the Fair may find it possible to donate to Queens College.

Sincerely yours,

PK BJ
