Dear Dr. Nash:
In this year of 1945 we have accomplished, through research, much on how to alleviate maladies and aid many hundreds of handicapped individuals.
Our Army, Navy and Veterans Administration have launched a very extensive program for rehabilitation and through the splendid efforts of the American Society for the Hard of Hearing, now celebrating its twenty-sixth anniversary, we shall gain tremendously in attaining victory for many who suffer the handicap of impaired hearing.
I have been pleased with the assurance that the splendid work being done by the American Society for the Hard of Hearing is known and appreciated by those agencies of the government whose concern is the alleviation of human suffering through the advancement of the art of healing. You and your associates are engaged in a work of the highest value, which deserves to succeed.
Each new achievement has brought into sharp relief the work
