IRVING STONE and HARRY GOLDEN
Irving Stone and Harry Golden sign an album leaf.
Signature: "Irving Stone/Oct 14, 1965" and on verso "Harry Golden, Charlotte N.C. 12-8-65", 1p, 7x9¼ album leaf. Below Stone's signature is affixed a captioned newspaper photo (b/w, 3½x5¾).

Irving STONE (1903-1989) wrote fictionalized portraits of American First Families, including Andrew and Rachel Jackson (The President's Lady, 1951) and Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln (Love is Eternal, 1954) and John and Abigail Adams (Those Who Love, 1965). Other Stone novels focused on historical figures include Vincent van Gogh (Lust for Life, 1934) and Michelangelo (The Agony and the Ecstasy, 1965). New York stockbroker Herschele Goldhirsch was convicted of mail fraud in 1929, after losing clients' money in unsuccessful speculations. Imprisoned for three years - he was later pardoned by President Nixon - he found a new career while editing the prison newsletter. Changing his name to Harry GOLDEN (1903-1981), he moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he soon founded his own newspaper, "The Charlotte Israelite". His humorous newspaper columns, lampooning segregation and racism and waxing nostalgic about New York's Lower East Side, became nationally popular. His writings were published in fifteen books, including bestsellers Only in America (1958), For 2-cents Plain (1959) and Enjoy! Enjoy! (1960). He was a popular guest on TV talk shows. Slightly frayed edge where page was removed from a book. Ink page numbers (unknown hand) in lower corners. Each signature shows through lightly. Otherwise, fine condition.
