In this letter, dated August 26, 1949, from United States Senator William Langer to the Reverend T. W. Strieter of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Chicago, Langer refers to their prior correspondence regarding the case of convicted Nazi war criminal Dr. Martin Sandberger, who is currently awaiting execution.
Langer writes that he has received word from US Senator Joseph R. McCarthy that the Special Senate Investigation Committee has voted unanimously to request that the Inspector General's office review each of the death [sentence] cases, as well as investigate the conditions at Landsberg (misspelled in this letter as "Lansberg") Prison, and that "the Secretary has agreed to hold up all executions until the investigation has been completed and the report rendered, which will probably take several months."
