|Item Description||This internal memorandum (July 29, 1953) contains the details of the David Cleveland Incident. As part of the "As I See It" column, David H. Smith called multiple people asking what book had the greatest influence on their lives. One college student gave his name as David Cleveland. However, Smith later received a call from Cleveland saying he never talked to Smith. He did not blame the Argus Leader; all he wanted was help trying to find the person who pretended to be him. Cleveland called back a week later to tell the Argus Leader he learned he could sue for alleged misuse of his name, but would not if there was a cash settlement. The Argus Leader offered to print a retraction that Cleveland turns down. Cleveland never makes another attempt to contact the Argus Leader.|
