Condition: Very good


New York: April 1, 1966., 1966.. Very good. - Typed letter filling two-thirds of a cream-colored 10-1/2 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide sheet of International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union letterhead with the union's logo and Dubinsky's name & title printed at the top. Signed "David Dubinsky". The top edge of the letter is lightly creased. Very good.

Dubinsky writes to Congressman Halpern thanking him for his thoughtful letter on the occasion of Dubinsky's retirement. "As you suspected, resignation from the office does not mean retirement from the movement....I intend to continue to be active in the labor movement and the Liberal Party as well as in other community affairs."

Born in Brest-Litovsk in the Russian Empire, American labor leader David Dubinsky [1892-1982] served as president of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union [ILGWU] between 1932 and 1966. He took part in the creation of the CIO and was one of the founders of the American Labor Party and the Liberal Party of New York.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
