STEINBECK CENTER SCORED - 06/24/10 08:28 S.S.

THE  NATIONAL  STEINBECK  CENTER IN SALINAS  CAME  BACK  FROM  A  NEW  YORK  AUCTION  (OF  JOHN  STEINBECK  ARCHIVES  AND  MEMORABILIA)  WITH  SEVERAL  ITEMS  FOR  THE  MUSEUM.    A  MANUSCRIPT  BY  THE  AUTHOR,   AS  WELL  AS  CORRESPONDENCE  BETWEEN  STEINBECK  AND  HIS  EDITORA  SET  OF FILM  AND  AUDIO  RECORDINGS,  HIS  OFFICE  CHAIR  AND  GLOBE,  AND  A COLLECTION  OF  PERSONAL  EFFECTS  SUCH  AS  PIPES,  EYEGLASSES  AMD  WALLETS.    THE  MEMORABILIA  INITIALLY  CAME  FROM  AN  APARTMENT  WHERE  HE  HAD  LIVED  IN  NEW  YORK.

 

THE  STEINBECK  CENTER DID NOT BID  ON  ONE  OF  THE  MOST  PUBLICIZED  ITEMS  (A  BRIEFCASE  THAT  ONCE  BELONGED  TO  MONTEREY  BIOLOGIST  AND  STEINBECK  CONFIDANT ED  RICKETTS,  INCLUDING  THE TELEGRAM  THAT  NOTIFIED  THE  AUTHOR  OF  A  CAR  CRASH  THAT  CLAIMED  RICKETTS’  LIFE).    THE  STEINBECK  CENTER  HAD  HOPED  THE  BRIEFCASE  AND  ITS  CONTENTS  WOULD  GO  TO  MONTEREY,   BUT  THAT  DID NOT  PAN  OUT.
