    Charles Siringo (1855-1928), a native Texas cowboy and author, moved to Chicago when he was thirty-one years old to join the Pinkerton Detective Agency. After he retired from the agency in 1907, he wrote a book about his work as a detective. Following a lawsuit by the agency, Siringo was ordered by a court to withhold the name Pinkerton from the book's title, Pinkerton's Cowboy Detective. The book, with its new title, A Cowboy Detective, was finally published in 1912. Fine. Ex Ben E. Pingenot.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
