Letter from Mrs. H. R. Sharp, state parole officer, regarding the parole of Otto P. Higgins, Inmate #55996-L. Sharp writes that she worked as Higgins' personal secretary for over fifteen years, and that from her experience as a parole officer, she believes that the subject has "been sufficiently punished," and will "be of valuable service to this community." Higgins, the former director of the Kansas City Police Department, was sentenced to two years in the United States Penitentiary at Leavenworth on charges of income tax evasion.
