Blue wool body with a number of small holes and cuts reserved to the back, right sleeve shows a few holes, a 7" cut at the elbow and some repaired cuts. The interior is a coarse woven brown wool which shows losses and wear, the body lining held fast with pins. The blue green cotton sleeve lining has an interesting printed design.

    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.
