 Digital Record
Identifier: LC76-12


  • Digitized: 1950


Summary Note

Kenneth was meeting with top government officials in Indonesia, among whom was a man named Sharir, whom Kenneth had first known in Washington. He was one of the revolutionaries and had come as a special emissary in the late 1940's to Washington. Kenneth entertained him and tried to engage him in conversation, but he wouldn't say anything because he thought he was being denigrated; he wasn’t meeting officials of sufficient rank.
