Clinton P. Anderson

Clinton was President of R.I. in 1932-1933. He is now known best as the U.S. Senator from (Democrat) Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Margaret and I have had bad luck catching up with him in Washington, but his Secretary always provided the necessary pass to the Senate (also Congress) and we spent some amusing hours there. On one occasion we listened to some blistering attacks on everything British. Good luck to you Senator Clinton.
