Hope, Bob (1903-2003) Comedian, actor, singer who recently passed away. Program Inscribed and Signed ("To Leon Askin - My Best, Bob Hope") on the cover. The event took place March 22, 1981 in Denver and was called "An Evening of Entertainment Honoring Bob Hope," during which Hope was presented with the ANTA National Artist Award. The program is 5/8" thick and is filled with images from Hope's long career and congratulations from fellow performers. Minor damage at lower spine; otherwise Fine. Also, a Typed Letter Signed ("Bob"), on personal stationery, July 22, 1968, n.p., small quarto. To Dot K. Kelly of Hollywood, giving humorous excuses for not having answered her mail about a Christmas show. He adds a very serious thought: "…it looks like we're going this year, too. I am against this war [Vietnam]; but I'm not against the kids who are fighting nor the principles for which they are fighting." A few stains in right margin; otherwise Fine. A letter with a printed signature is also included. (3 items).
Estimated Value $400 - 600.

Realized $633
