Letter from Stanford

In February 1931, Anita C. Post sent a hand-written letter to E. R. Riesen, Dean of the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Arizona, giving him an update on her progress toward her doctorate at Stanford. The letter was included in the Special Collections Biographical File at the University of Arizona Library.

After completing her doctorate, Anita returned to Tucson and continued teaching at Arizona. In 1933, John Fitzgerald, head of the Spanish Department at Arizona, sent a letter to Dean Riesen recommending that Anita be promoted, stating that her thesis "is not only a creditable piece of study that would be accepted anywhere and would be interest to scholars anywhere; it is something peculiarly fit for Arizona."

This is further recognition of a remarkable woman.
