    Description

    Robert Stroud Signed Letter. Here is a handwritten letter from Robert Stroud, the "Birdman of Alcatraz," to Mamie Stroud, dated October 2, 1950, concerning family news, a medication that he is taking, and speculation on recent events. The letter reads in part: "My kidney gives me a lot of pain in the morning, but it is gradually improving. So is my tongue. The tip is a little sore. They are giving me all the vitamins in the book ... I am wondering if that really was a meteor you saw and heard ... I am wondering if it could have been the Oakridge Atomic Bomb plant that blew up and they are calling it a meteor to hide the truth." In fine condition, with even overall toning and a couple of small edge tears. With COA from PSA/DNA.
