Morris, Dr. Lewis R. Audience With the President Today Jan. 9, 1930

Dr. Morris' Audience
With President Today

Washington, D. C., Jan. 9, (Special to The Star)--Dr. Louis R. Morris of Morris, donor of Neahwa park to the city of Oneonta and well known for his many philanthropies, will have an audience with President Hoover Friday at 12:30 o'clock at the White House through the intercession of Representative John D. Clarke.

Following the interview with the President, Dr. Morris will call on Attorney General Mitchell. The appointment with Mr. Mitchell, also made by Mr. Clarke is for 2:30 o'clock.

Dr. Morris, it was pointed out in Washington, is a grandson of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Mrs. Morris, daughter of the late Senator Clarke of Montana, gave the new annex to the Corcoran Art Gallery of Washington.
No political significance is attached to the interviews, Representative Clarke 

Comment:  The paper had spelled his name wrong.  It should have been Dr. Lewis R. Morris.

  1. Isn't it amazing how they get these names wrong -- even after the family has donated half the cost of a school to the town of Morris?

    I think this article is about the same Louis/Lewis Rutherfurd Morris.
