    Description

    Frank Butler: 1908 Shooting Tournament Program with Notation by Him. Fred Stone was a vaudeville comedian and song and dance man who hit the big time when he created the role of the Scarecrow in Broadway's "Wizard of Oz." He and his wife Allene became best friends with Frank and Annie in about 1900. A shared passion for competitive trapshooting led him to become a missionary for the sport. This booklet announces the 1908 "State Tournament" at the "Fred A. Stone Gun Club" in Denver, Colorado. 5" x 7.5". Very good condition. This lot will be accompanied by a family letter of provenance.

    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.
