"To Francis, very best Wishes from Warren 1/22/16." 

William Warren Barbour (1888-1943) was an amateur heavyweight boxing champion, 
a wealthy businessman, and a United States Senator from New Jersey (1931-1937). 

On October 14, 1943, barely a week after meeting with the rabbis, and despite strong public 
and political opinion against allowing further immigration to the United States, 
Barbour introduced a bill that would have permitted as many as 100,000 victims of the Holocaust 
"who are now being persecuted either because of racial or religious belief" to come to America 
and to remain in the United States as visitors for the duration of the war.
