Autograph letter. 4 pp. January 22, 1930. From the pianist and composer and pianist (and aviation instructor for the U.S. Armed Forces!), addressed to "My dear Miss Vermont." He details his recent employments, including as head of the piano department at the College of Music of Cincinnati, but notes that "unfortunately the climate was too hard for me there, and this forced me to leave this splendid position." He is seeking employment for the following year in California after he completes a concert tour in Europe. A little musty, but overall in fine condition and sold together with two different single-sheet NY Town Hall recital programs, each with an inset photograph of Barsukov.
