This is a letter from George F. Kunz, a mineralogist and president of the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society, to Mary Louise Curtis Bok upon hearing the news of Edward W. Bok's death. Mr. Bok was the former editor of Ladies' Home Journal and the founder of the Mountain Lake Sanctuary and Singing Tower (now Bok Tower Gardens). Mrs. Bok was his wife and the founder of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The stationary on which the letter is written contains information on the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society. The letter is typed in black ink. In the upper right corner in black ink a check mark with 'MLB' may indicate a response was sent by Mrs. Bok. There is a handwritten note in pencil, likely in Mrs. Bok's hand, concerning Mr. Kunz's address.
