UPTON SINCLAIR
1961 check for $6.75, endorsed by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Upton Sinclair
Check endorsed "For deposit/Upton Sinclair" in blue ink. 6¼x2¾ with perforated left edge. Check is dated May 17, 1961. Check no. 224 for $6.75, made out to Sinclair and drawn on the account of John T. Mahoney at the Chase Manhattan Bank in New York City. American writer Sinclair (1878-1968) is best known for The Jungle, his 1906 novel exposing the horrors of the Chicago meat-packing industry. His other novels include The Money Changers (1908), King Coal (1917) and Oil! (1927). Sinclair was also active in politics, organizing the socialist EPIC (End Poverty in California) movement during the Great Depression and running for as Democratic candidate for Governor of California in 1934. In the 1940s, Sinclair wrote an 11-volume series about contemporary American character, "Lanny Budd", who travels through time and meets historical figures; Dragon's Teeth (1942), in which Budd meets Adolf Hitler, won the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Eight of his books have been adapted for film and TV, including There Will Be Blood (2007), which was based on Oil!. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Normal bank stamps and cancellation holes, which touch endorsement. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
