Man of the Year
Unless memory fails me, TIME has never awarded its Man of the Year honor posthumously. Surely this year is the time to establish that precedent. Nobody anywhere on earth deserves this year the recognition more than the late Dag Hammarskjold.
WILLIAM B. LIPPHARD
Your forthcoming selection has not been so easy in many a moon. I am confident that even the Russians are placing a safe bet it will be that great statesman and worker for peace in our time, Dag Hammarskjold.
