From the Desk of Sumitro Djojohadikusumo

A couple of items from the brilliant economist and Indonesian Minister of Finance, Sumitro Djojohadikusumo (also spelled Soemitro Djojohadikoesoemo), who Vlado worked with during his time in Indonesia, 1947 to 1951.

Sumitro letter to John D. Rockefeller
It was very nice of Sumitro to write a letter of introduction for Vlado’s sister to Mr. John D. Rockefeller III, but it looks like it wasn’t needed. An amusing find!
