    Ansel Adams Typed Note Signed. One page, 5.5" x 3.25", June 26, 1969, n.p. Adams writes Rednor Coombs of Massachusetts that his prints have arrived safely, but "Things are HECTIC!!!!!!!" Adams' signature is large and in red ink. Fine.

    More Information:

    Photographer Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was most known for his high-resolution images of the Yosemite National Park. Shortly before writing this letter, he had returned from a trip there. In part: "I have just returned from Yosemite and am preparing for the Santa Cruz Workshop. Your prints are here safely and I shall examine them just as soon as I can. Things are HECTIC!!!!!!!"
