UC Santa Barbara Frank Chin Papers

Two letters from Michi Weglyn to Frank Chin. In the first letter, dated February 21, 1979, Weglyn criticizes a piece of writing Chin sent to Weglyn and others for their feedback. Weglyn refers to the piece as Chin's "'Dear Senator Sam' letter." One of her primary criticisms is that Weglyn feels Chin is not hard enough of former U.S. Senator H.I. Hayakawa. Weglyn suggests a variety of changes for the piece. In the second letter, dated February 22, 1979, Weglyn apologizes for the tone of her first letter but still encourages changes. These letters are likely referring to draft of an open letter that Frank Chin wrote criticizing Senator Hayakawa that was published in the "Washington Post" on May 9, 1979.
