In the letter, 3 of the men have connections to Baltimore: Robert Baxter McRary, President of the Lincoln University Alumni Association, lived at 1515 Druid Hill Avenue. William Norman Bishop, a 1912 Lincoln University graduate, lived at 1117 Druid Hill Avenue and 1216 McCulloh Street. Bishop was a charter member of the Delta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and part of the John A. Bishop & Son Funeral Home in historic Old West Baltimore. John W. Haywood, Treasurer of the LU Alumni Association, was on staff at Morgan College.
