DescriptionCaptain Jack Crawford Archive. Three interesting items associated with the flamboyant "Poet Scout" John Wallace "Captain Jack" Crawford including a one page typed letter on Crawford's personal letterhead, dated January 5, 1905, to General D. W. Benham, Tiffin, Ohio and signed by Crawford's secretary, acknowledging receipt of the general's scrap book which Capt. Jack was going to use for book research purposes; a four page promotional brochure for Crawford's speaking engagements with testimonials from the various venues he had spoken at; and an intriguing undated, one page typed letter (sadly with first page missing) in which Crawford speaks of making motion pictures and wanting "a different contract from anyone." He indicates that motion pictures would enhance his speaking engagements but he can't always be assured that "they have machines to run them...It might be pay to carry a man and machine." He has signed the letter in ink "J. W. Crawford/ "Capt Jack" using his unique method of incorporating the "C" of Crawford into the "Capt" of the line below. He adds a post script: "Am sending you two or three of my Grand Canyon pictures one for Mr. Southern Jack". From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
Condition: Paper on the letters toned and with the usual fold creases, else very good. Promotional brochure has been folded, else is very good.
