RE: I think I might have a I need a book
I haven't yet, Donna, although that is on the agenda. I'm in the process right now of working with the Knox College Special Collections in Galesburg and working my way through the Ida Tarbell papers. I know that there are well over 30 letters between Sandburg and Townsend (going both directions) in the Sandburg papers in Urbana. I wonder if there are more in Lexington (which is where Townsend's papers are located, is it not?).

By the way, please remember me to Kim Bauer. Not only was Kim an integral part of the old ALO mailbag, but he and I are products of that great establishment of learning, Eastern Illinois University, known to many as Harvard on the Embarrass (which, for those unaware, is pronounced EM ber ah).


Abraham Lincoln in the only man, dead or alive, with whom I could have spent five years without one hour of boredom.

I want the respect of intelligent men, but I will choose for myself the intelligent.
--Carl Sandburg
