[Letter from Albert Armendariz to Frank M. Pinedo - 1955-02-17]

Description: Onionskin paper carbon copy of letter from Albert Armendariz, League of United Latin American Citizens National Officer, to Frank M. Pinedo, stating that Armendariz no longer wishes to be National Officer of LULAC due to unfair acts committed against members of LULAC. The letter outlines the impeachment of John J. Herrera and David Longoria and mentions the action taken against the LULAC lodge. "It is no longer safe to act on behalf of the Lulac Organization, for the danger of impeachment without a hearing will menace our every action or inaction [...] it pains me greatly to know that our Organization, the Supreme Council, would be guilty of condemning without an opportunity to be heard."
