OFFICEOFTHE PRESIDENT April 50, 1955
Dr. Sigismond DeR. Diettrich
University of Florida
My dear Sigismond:
We shall make out the formal papers and send them on
to the Royal Hungarian Pazmany Peter University, so that they will
know you have been duly appointed to represent Clark University at
their Tercentary celebration. We shall give them your address at
the University of Florida, for they may forward some information to
you during the summer.
I am enclosing the program which was sent to my of-
fice, but I should suggest that when you arrive in Budapest you plan
to get in touch with the secretary, or some officer, of the committee
on the celebration and find out just what you will be expected to do.
In this country there is usually an academic procession, or some
formal occasion when we wear caps and gowns. Perhaps they will do
that. There are usually many pleasant social occasions which I am
sure you will enjoy. From our standpoint the most we can ask you to
do is to take any occasion you may have to extend to the officers of
the University the sincere felicitations of the President, Trustees
and Faculty of Clark University, and to assure them of our deep appre-
ciation of the courtesy which they have shown in inviting us to be
I sincerely hope you will extend my best wishes to Count
Teleki and to any others that you meet who ask about us, or know about
us, and I hope you will have a delightful and very profitable experience.
What are they going to.do about someone to take over
your work while you are away? Can we be of any assistance?
