Typed Letter signed: "Isaac", 1 p, 8¼x10½. New York, N. Y., 1970 July 9. On his personal letterhead to Mrs. Ben Hill Brown, Jr., Alexandria, Virginia. Begins: "Dear Naomi". In full: "What happy, happy news when I got back from South America two days ago and found the announcement of your wedding. Vera and I send you and your husband our very best wishes for many healthy and full years together and hope that we can meet you both before too long - - perhaps some time when we are in Washington. Affectionately, As ever," Russian-born violinist Isaac Stern (1920-2001), who presented some 200 concerts annually during the height of his career, appeared in a number of documentaries and TV specials, including the Emmy Award-winning Carnegie Hall: The Grand Reopening (1987) and Yo-Yo Ma: At Tanglewood (1990). The virtuoso, who made his U.S. debut with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra in 1936, first performed at Carnegie Hall in 1943, and he would later serve as President of Carnegie Hall for 40 years. Among Stern's many honors were the Kennedy Center Honor (presented by President Reagan in 1984) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (awarded by President Bush in 1992). Fold creases not at signature. Fine condition.
