This handwritten letter dated April 29, 1949, from Vice President of National American Indian Defense Association Floyd Montclair to United States Senator William Langer, calls Langer’s attention to Superintendent Quin and Mr. Penseneau who “needs some training in the administration of the Affairs of the Indians.” Montclair mentions that Quin and Penseneau will ask Langer for protection, therefore Montclair would like his letter to be “made part of the hearings before your committee for remedy.” A note on the letter reads, “am sending it to Indian Committee as requested.”
