    Jack Kerouac Thrice Signed Check. One page, 6.25" x 2.75", January 16, 1959, for $100 drawn on the Security National Bank of Northport, New York. The payee is "Jack Kerouac"; "PAID/ 1 1959" perforation holes through "Kerouac". The front of the check is also signed "Jack Kerouac" as the drawer. Kerouac endorsement on verso has been stamped by the Second National Bank of Huntington. There is no memo line; the check number is 56. The account's owners are listed as Jack Kerouac and Gabrielle Kerouac, his mother. Kerouac (1922-1969) was an important early voice of the Beat Generation, expressing himself through his books like On the Road (1957), The Dharma Bums (1958), and Big Sur (1962). He moved to Northport, New York, in 1958 to care for his mother. Fine.
