Edward Murrow's response to Al McCarron
In this letter, Edward R. Murrow responds to a letter from his former college classmate, Al McCarron. With regards to McCarron's dislike of changes in the San Francisco area brought about by World War II, Murrow says that McCarron should spend some time in Germany. He also mentions that he has just returned from three weeks in Germany himself, and will probably be off again soon. He says he envies McCarron's time spent in San Luis Obispo, even for three days. The letter implies a contrast between conditions in Germany and the West Coast of the United States near the end of World War II.
