Himmler, Heinrich. Typed Letter Signed ("H. Himmler,") one page, large quarto, Berlin, October 15, 1938. Himmler advises "Dear Kurt," that he has made SS-Gruppenführer Dr. Kaltenbrunner aware of Kurt's letter, and advises Kurt to have a friendly chat with Kaltenbrunner on the subject. Himmler adds a friendly closing, "Dein" (Your). Official docket stamp of "Der Chef der Ordnungspolizei," file notes and punch holes at left margin, else fine. Kaltenbrunner joined the Nazi Party in 1932 and became head of the Austrian SS. After the Anschlüss, Kaltenbrunner was elected to the Reichstag and became minister of state security and police chief for Vienna. As deputy head of the Gestapo, Kaltenbrunner impressed Himmler, who appointed him head of the RSHA after the assassination of Heydrich. From the Institute of Documentation in Israel. Fine.
