ALEX HALEY. Check signed: "Alex Haley", 6x2¾. Norris, Tennessee, 1989 September 28. Check No. 723, drawn on the account of Alex Haley or Lizz Sims, Secretary at Anderson County Bank, Clinton, Tennessee, payable to Knoxville Ford Tractor for $731.11. Stamped endorsement on verso. Already known as the author of a definitive biography of black leader Malcolm X, author Alex Haley (1921-1992) created a sensation-and single-handedly launched a new interest in genealogy-with his book, Roots. The saga, which traced his African roots, was first excerpted in "Reader's Digest" before publication in book form in 1976. The story, which was televised as a successful miniseries in 1977, resulted in a number of awards for Haley, including the National Book Award, a special Pulitzer Prize and the NAACP's Spingarn Medal, as well as several honorary doctor of letters degrees for his research, which spanned 12 years. Lightly creased. Bank stamps touches "Alex" in signature. Staple holes and ink notation at upper left blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
