I am enclosing a check for Three Dollars ($3.00) to cover the cost of mailing.   I have contributed annually to the UNR Alumni Association for a number of years. My wife and I drive to Reno occasionally and I usually try to visit the University. On my next visit I will stop in and say hello to you. We should have a very interesting visit.   Sincerely yours,  Signed Theodore H. Miller Class of 1930  P.S. I am listed in the 1st Edition, 1975-1976, Volume 1 of Who’s Who Among Black Americans. Also listed in the 1951 edition of Who’s Who on the Pacific Coast. Also in the 1957 edition of Who’s Who in Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity.
