Lot 907: Large autograph collection assembled through the mail by Henry Lohrengal, a mail clerk and amateur photographer from Kansas City, containing approximately 3,000 to 4,000 items. Most of the collection consists of photocopies of newspaper articles and reviews, and it also has many letters, signatures, and photographs, many of which are evidently snapshots that Lohrengal took of his television screen during celebrity appearances. Lohrengal wrote to and received responses from all types of figures, including actors, actresses, writers, politicians, musicians, foreign dignitaries, scientists, and businessmen. Many of the names present are quite obscure, with a selection of those more well-known including: Brad Anderson, Sergio Aragones, Douglas Bader, Roger Bannister, Cecil Beaton, Pappy Boyington, Warren Buffett, Cesar Chavez, John Cheever, Julia Child, Claudette Colbert, William O. Douglas, Margot Fonteyn, Chester Gould, Red Grange, Gunter Grass, Kevin Peter Hall, Armand Hammer, Johnny Hart, Ed Hillary, Bob Hope, Ted Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Akira Kurosawa, Ferdinand Marcos, Zeppo Marx, William Masters, Russell Myers, Clarence Nash, Laurence Olivier, I. M. Pei, Prince Rainier, Robert Redford, Joe Rosenthal, Dr. Seuss, Willie Shoemaker, John J. Sirica, Samantha Smith, Tom Stafford, and William Westmoreland. In overall very good to fine condition. The key autographs mentioned within this collection have been reviewed as authentic, but due to the large quantity a few secretarial and/or printed signatures may be present in the remainder. Interested parties are encouraged to view the collection in person at our offices or call us with specific inquiries, as this collection is sold as-is and no returns will be accepted.
