Peter Drucker writes Mr. Terry Teachout regarding Teachout's interest in writing an "intellectual biography" on Drucker. He says that he is impressed with Teachout's interest in wanting to pay attention to Drucker's early books, and says that he would hope that Teachout would focus on his social and political writings at least as much as his management writings. Drucker goes on to explain the things he would not be willing to cooperate with, such as not wanting to discuss his family life in the biography. The letter is dated "October 28, 1994" on page 1, and "October 25, 1994" on page 2.
