Simon Bolivar Signs a Beautiful Military Document The national hero of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, born in Caracas.

    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.
