CARL SANDBURG and LILIAN SANDBURG
Black and white publicity photograph of Carl Sandburg and Lilian Sandburg in front of Carl Sandburg's 75th birthday cake.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "For/Cornelius Greenway/Chicago, Ill./Jan. 6 1953/Carl Sandburg" and "Lilian Sandburg". B/w, 8x9¾. The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Lincoln biographer is pictured with his wife on January 6, 1953, his 75th birthday. He had married Lilian Steichen, sister of photographer Edward Steichen, in 1908. The couple had been married for 59 years at the time of his death in 1967. American historian and author Carl Sandburg (1878-1967), also a folklorist and poet, published his first book of poems, Chicago Poems, in 1916, while working as a newspaper reporter. He continued to publish books of poetry during the 1920s while writing two extensive biographies of Abraham Lincoln, The Prairie Years (1926, two volumes) and The War Years (1939, four volumes). Sandburg, who won the 1940 Pulitzer Prize for History for the latter volume, won another Pulitzer in 1951 for Complete Poems. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964. Lightly rippled. Light paper clip impression at upper left. Fine condition.
