Abstract: Clay thanks Walter for making it possible for Professor Fraenkel and his wife to remain in Germany an additional year without forfeiting their citizenship; Clay states that they are "serving us well." An army officer and a political advisor, Clay's organizational skills put him in charge of the port of Charbourg during World War II, and later promoted him to deputy military governor of the American zone of Berlin (1945). He advised Eisenhower and Kennedy on the Berlin situation. The letter's recipient, Congressman Walter, was chairman of the Committee on Un-American Activities. Walter also served in World War II and as a Representative from Pennsylvania in the seventy-third and fifteen succeeding Congresses, serving from 1933 until his death May 31, 1963.
