Letter written by Glenn Cunningham, 1909-1988, on Olympic Village stationery during the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany, to Leslie M. Heath, Emporia, Kansas. Cunningham, a well known Kansas runner who specialized in the mile, wrote about his defeat in the 1500 meter race. Mr. Heath, a postmaster and stamp collector, had asked Cunningham, whom he knew through sporting events, to send him some German stamps. The envelope indicated that Cunningham was living in Peabody, Kansas at this time and contains a postmark from the Olympic Village. The "over" directive at the bottom of the letter was added in pencil probably at a later date. The signatures on the back of the letter have not been authenticated.

Creator: Cunningham, Glenn, 1910-
