The answer is Aaron Copland. He wrote most of his letters himself, but two times in his life Copland had the services of a secretary, while at work on the score for North Star, a 1943 anti-war film produced by Samuel Goldwyn Productions and later while working in London the publisher Boosey & Hawkes provided Copland with a secretary, and during these times he dictated letters to the secretary, though they were not as good as when he sat down himself and wrote them.
