    Description

    James Dean's Fifth Grade Notebook. This three-ring binder was used by Dean in the course of his fifth grade education, circa 1941. The sixteen pages of notebook paper still in the notebook include history, geography, spelling, and math homework -- as well as a few doodles -- plus four loose pages, one of which features almost a dozen practice signatures by "Jimmie" Dean, and is also signed by him on the inside back cover. Dean had been enrolled in Brentwood Public School until his mother died of cancer in 1940; at age nine, his father sent him to live with his aunt Ortense and uncle Marcus Winslow on a farm in Fairmount, Indiana, where he was to complete his education. The binder is in Good condition with major wear, yet the binding is still in fairly sturdy shape. The pages are all in Very Fine condition with mild to moderate wear and tanning. A unique item, accompanied with a signed letter of authenticity from Dean's cousin, Marcus Winslow. From the James Dean Museum archive. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
