In Memoriam: Dudley Stuart Blossom.

Cleveland: N.p., 1938 October 30. 8vo. Stiff tan folder. (2pp). Tipped-in illustration. Very good. Program for a memorial concert honoring the reknowned wholesale hardware magnate, the noted Cleveland philanthropist who funded many a Cleveland civic project. Left inner page features a tipped-in portrait of Blossom, who had died on October 7. Right side lists the speaker -- Cleveland mayor Harold H. Burton -- and musical selection that included Wagner and Brahms. Unusual, and in tight clean condition -- an interesting tidbit of Cleveland history. From the collection of noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar ARNOLD F. GATES (1914-93). Item #28004

Price: $25.00
