To Helen Cather SouthwickFeb. 12, 1944, extract made by E. K. Brown ; Beinecke 

Recalls meeting Paul Robeson at the Menuhins' apartment when Yehudi was fourteen. Wondered if she was going to feel the effects of her southern heritage [because of race], but once she came into the presence of the man all she thought about was his greatness. Recalls seeing Robeson and Uta Hagen in Othello. She conceived and acted the part beautifully.   [Stout #1658]
