Vietnam, N. Korea/ Rick & Neil climbed to 8th station (out of 10) on Mt. Fuji with some Japanese Scouts". Sweat stains on the sweatband, fading, fine. CAG 1002090-013.

    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.
