Dated September 7, 1950; on New York Times letterhead, to Colonel C. Lawton Campbell at the American National Theater and Academy (ANTA) in New York. Atkinson is resigning as a director of ANTA, citing potential conflict of interest: "Since ANTA has now reached the point where it is able to move into the field of production, I feel that as a professional drama critic I shall have to withdraw....No matter what (my) opinions were they would be challenged as biased." He goes on to be very complimentary of the Colonel and the dedicated people of ANTA, and intends to remain as a member, "...and naturally remain as one of its friends." Atkinson has a theater named after him on Broadway, and he edited a Modern Library volume of Henry David Thoreau, "Walden and Other Writings" (1937), and wrote a biography of him: "Henry Thoreau, Cosmic Yankee (1927).
