55 years ago today - May 27, 1966

Ezra Taft Benson to Robert H. Hinckley, 27 May 1966: "I cannot believe that a man with your background and experience would make the errors attributed to you in the attached item from the Deseret News of May 25th". [Hinckley had criticized the John Birch Society and noted that Ezra Taft Benson was a leading figure of the right-wing. See entry for May 24, 1966.]
