This is a signed typed letter in German, signed A. Einstein, 8.5 x 11, blindstamped Princeton letterhead, dated June 26, 1946. The letter is to violinist Boris Schwarz, a professor of music at Queens College in New York. In full (translated): I know the writer of the enclosed lines, the musician Walter Kaufmann, personally and consider it possible and desirable that he should come and that suitable work be provided for him. I think there is enough interest in oriental music here. The man also has great experience in musical radio operation. What do you think about it and what do you advise me to do for him? In fine condition, with light perimeter toning, and a short tear to the bottom edge. Kaufmann, a noted composer, conductor, and musicologist, was especially well-known for his study of Asian music. He decided to leave Europe in the 1930s because of his Jewish ancestry, and traveled throughout India studying their music. He was unable to return to his native Prague after the war, as his family’s fortune had been confiscated. Instead, he emigrated to Canada; after living and teaching there for several years, he ultimately settled in the United States and became a naturalized citizen in 1964.
