    Description

    Mohandas K. Gandhi Photograph Signed "MK Gandhi." Measuring 7" x 9.75", this vintage matte finished W.H. Grove & Son photograph features a bust of the Mahatma by sculptress Clare Sheridan (1885-1970), a cousin of Sir Winston Churchill, who has inscribed and countersigned. Gandhi has signed near the lower right corner, just above Sheridan's inscription, which reads: "To Mrs. Cheeseman, in remembrance of - Oct. 1931. [signed] Clare Sheridan." Fine.

    In 1931, Gandhi visited the United Kingdom for twelve weeks to attend the Second Round Table Conference (September through December 1931). On October 17, he gave his famous "My Spiritual Message" speech at Kingsley Hall in London. This is likely the "remembrance" to which Sheridan is here referring. From the Collection of a Minnesota Gentleman.

    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.
