Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk

Czechoslovak politician, statesman, sociologist and philosopher, 1850-1937

"Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk was appointed professor of philosophy at the Czech Charles-Ferdinand University, the Czech-language part of Charles University, in 1882 and contested the Jewish blood libel during the 1899 Hilsner trial. He advocated restructuring the Austro-Hungarian Empire into a federal state until 1914. With the help of the Allied Powers, Masaryk gained independence for a Czechoslovak Republic as World War I ended in 1918. He co-founded Czechoslovakia together with Milan Rastislav Štefánik and Edvard Beneš and served as its first president, and so is called by some Czechs the ""President Liberator"". Masaryk was re-elected three times in 1920, 1927 and 1934."

My dear Catholic friend: peccatur intra et extra muros – the Croatians have no able leader, the Serbians either, as you say. About the King I have no opinion, how able he is. I think, the Serbians are good soldiers, but they lack in administrative skillfulness; the Croatians are a bit conceited, that they have a higher culture than their Serbian brethren; and unhappily they had from the beginning no leaders.

Radic was, poor fellow, shortsighted physically & mentally; not seeing sharply the contours of men & kings he was mentally unclear & phantastic [...]“ (letter from 22nd june 1933; letterhead of the Savoy Westend Hotel in Carlsbad)..
