    More Information:

    Bobby Jones is one of the enduring legends of golf, the Tiger Woods of his time. A lifelong amateur, Jones was the first, and still only, golfer to complete the Grand Slam of major tournaments in a single season. He was the first superstar of golf, though he retired at age 28, and went on to make instructional films, design golf courses, and found The Masters Tournament in 1934. When he was named a Freeman of the City of St. Andrews, Scotland in 1958, he was only the second American to be so honored (after Benjamin Franklin in 1759).

    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.
