Abstract/Description
Sends information on the Encyclopedia of the Negro and will send an article on the cultural persistence of Africanisms in Bahia for the journal Africa. Wishes Westermann's opinions on persons of mixed race in Brazil versus the United States: "I find it rather difficult, in short, to reconcile the anthropological conception of the Negro with the conception that prevails in the United States where, as you know, one drop of African blood makes a white man a Negro or, to use the census definition, 'a Negro is one who is known as such in the community in which he lives.'"
