    James Montgomery Flagg Handsome Autograph Letter About Colorado Springs Autograph Letter Signed, 1 page, 8.5" by 11, no place. January 11, 1926. To "Bennett of Colorado Springs." In very fine condition. Best remembered as the creator of the iconic World War I "I Want You" recruiting poster featuring a pointing Uncle Sam (modeled on himself), Flagg was, in addition to being an artist, an author - a fact he refers to here, fleetingly, as he recalls a trip to Colorado Springs, Colorado. In full: "Thanks for your letter. I have been to your present home town - 23 years ago - & stopped by at a nice little hostelry "The Antler" - so I have traveled! I sidestepped Chamber of Commerce as I didn't want to feel under obligation not to say what I thought - Glad my book interested you." Flagg may have been referring to his 1925 account of a riotous road trip, Boulevards All the Way - Maybe, which raised, critically, riots of its own, either loved or hated. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    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.
