    Mamie Dowd Eisenhower: Pink Hat, Gloves, and Shoes with a Photograph of Ike in a Travelling Frame. The hat, in Mrs. Eisenhower's trademark pink and covered in ostrich feathers, was made by Laddie Northridge, 16 W. 57th St., New York. The cloth gloves are 10" long and unmarked. The shoes, 6½ B X959 / AA heel and marked on the liner, "Made Expressly for Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower", are in an A.S. Beck Cameo Room box. The 6.25 x 2.75" red leather traveling frame has a heart-shaped opening with a photograph of a smiling President Eisenhower. Included is a written note that reads, "October 26, 1984 / To Raleigh / The salmon color gloves and hat were owned and worn by the First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower at the White House. I served the Eisenhowers for eight years. / Wilma H. Holness/ 42-74" All show only very light wear, thus very fine.

    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.
