    More Information:

    Shaw, the well-known Irish writer, suggests to Frank Haywood, Jr. where he might find a copy of an article by the Austrian Jewish philosopher Max Nordau. In full: "Dear Sir, It is just possible that Frederick H. Evans, bookseller, 77 Queen St., Cheapside, London E.C., may have some copies of the Nordau article left: I know he laid in a small stock when it was fresh. My own copy is not available just at present--I forgot who borrowed it last./ Yours faithfully/ G. Bernard Shaw." Frederick Evans, bookseller and acquaintance of Shaw, retired from bookselling in 1898 to become a full-time photographer, eventually becoming well-known in this capacity.

    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.
