[Sentiment or Tribute]: I shall remember...

Price: $250.00

A large sheet of stiff paper, with a handwritten tribute to the former and longtime head of the writer's program at Indiana University. Removed from a volume of tributes compiled in 1975 (and which we have been buying a page at a time over the past decade). Approximately 11.75" x 14.5". Near fine. The tribute is writ large, as befitting the size of the page, with Brooks signature being about 7" across.
