                                                     W.E. Burghardt Du Bois


							January 14, 1916.


My dear Major & Mrs. Young:

			The fact of
the matter is this:  The Major has
been selected for the Spingarn medal,
being the second recipient for the same.

	You know that the Spingarn
medal is given to the colored American
who has done the best work during the year.
Of course, you must be on hand to receive
it.

	The meeting will probably take
place at Ethical Culture Hall, Washington's 
birthday, or possibly February twenty-third.
We are trying to have Governor McCall of
Massachusetts and several other distinguished
people to speak.

	Miss Nerney has resigned so Mrs.
Young won't need to write her.  The Major
must plan to be here the morning of February
twenty-second.

		Best regards,

			Very sincerely yours,

				W.E.B. DuBois

Major & Mrs. Charles Young.
