[Letter from Betty Jane Williams to Maxine Flournoy, February 23, 2001]

Description: Letter from Betty Jane Williams to WASP President Maxine Flournoy discussing the decision to pay Mildred Carter's expenses to attend the WASP's next national conference. During WWII, Carter had applied to join the WASP but was denied because the government excluded African-American women from serving in the program. Williams disagrees with the action taken at the October business meeting and urges the WASP to rescind their offer to pay Carter's expenses.
