Letter from Ray P. Chase to Edward E. Nicholson requesting information about how much Langston Hughes was paid for his public lecture at the University of Minnesota. That information appeared in Are they Communists or Catspaws, his antisemitic and red-baiting attack in 1938 on Farmer-Labor candidateGovernor Benson during the election for governor. Chase does not know Langston Hughes’s first name.
