    Description

    Dorothy Kilgallen Autograph Letter Signed "Dorothy Kilgallen." One page, 8.5" x 5.5", no place; no date. The journalist writes in blue ink: "To Barbara - You're a glamour girl now - But I knew you when you were like this: [sketch of a little round girl]." Known for reporting sensitive and discreet information, Kilgallen died at the age of 52 in 1965, from an apparent alcohol and barbiturate overdose. However, there is speculation that she was actually murdered before exposing a conspiracy surrounding John F. Kennedy's assassination.

    Condition: Light edge toning. Six holes punched along the top edge. Boldly signed.
