    Brigid Polk (real name, Brigid Berlin, born 1939) is an artist, photographer, actress, and was a central figure of Andy Warhol's Factory (she even took part in his infamous prank when, in 1969, Warhol told the world that all of his paintings were actually by her - this led to a drastic drop in value of his artwork, and a retraction by both Warhol and her, but the question of authorship looms to this day). From the collection of I.D. "Nash" Flores III.

    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.
