DescriptionA Large Group of Telegrams, 1970s. Approximately 45, all Western Union, ranging in date from 1976 to 1979, mostly sent to Wayne at various hospitals (though some are congratulatory for his Congressional Gold Medal or birthday wishes) from his many famous friends who wished him well including (in alphabetical order): Spiro Agnew, Steve Allen, Gene Autry, Ernest Borgnine, George Burns, James Cagney, Rory Calhoun, Gloria De Haven, Glenn Ford, Barry Goldwater, Billy Graham, William Holden, Bob Hope, Patricia Neal, George Peppard, Martha Raye, Frank Sinatra, Red Skelton, Steven Spielberg, Rod Steiger, James Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, Hal Wallis, Raoul Walsh, Barbara Walters, and Natalie Wood, among a few others; some in particular are very funny like the ones from Burns and Peppard; a wonderful record of correspondence amongst friends that sadly does not exist in today's digital era.
