The Arthur Schlesinger Jr. Memorial autographs (April 23, 2007)

Updated on April 30, 2013

On April 23, 2007, I was on the video crew that covered the Memorial Service honoring the life of a great U.S. statesman, historian, author and liberal, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. We were there to capture it for replay on C-SPAN. It took place at the historic Great Hall at Cooper Union in New York City.

While there I gathered event paper materials and the autographs of fifteen attendees on the front or back of fifteen official programs. It was very easy, although I wish I had tried to gather even more signatures. I simply asked them to sign a program to mark this important event.

In this Hub I reveal those pieces, anĀ archiveĀ I am very proud to have in my possession - and the only one like it.
