Box 08-138a TO THOMAS BAKER MCQUESTEN from Howard P. Whidden
Mar 21 1941
To: The Honourable T.B. McQuesten, Minister of Highways, Toronto, Ontario
From: McMaster University, Office of the Chancellor
Dear Mr. McQuesten:
I appreciate more than words can express your very kind personal message concerning my retirement from the Chancellorship of McMaster. You are all too good and more than generous. What you say about Mrs. Whidden is true, but then you are a "ladies' man" and, of course, that is natural.
Do not forget that from the beginning I have been under indebtedness to you for constant support and inspiration in connection with the brining of McMaster to Hamilton and the making possible of its beautiful surroundings and setting.
At your suggestion, I shall drop in to see Mr. Langs though, of course, Mr. Thomson's judgment has, I understand, been passed on to Mr. Fox.
Yes, I think you can count on our settling in Hamilton. It is good of you to want poor folk, of whom Hamilton has quite a number, to put down their stakes here.
With sincere appreciation,
Howard P. Whidden 1
The Honourable TB. McQuesten,
Minister of Highways,
