  • Hi, I have 20 pieces altogether from and have attached five of them herein. I apologize for the poor quality of some of them; I am not very skilled at taking pictures with an iPad. Each illustration has written on it, in pencil, the page number on which it was to be printed in the book. The ones I have, for the most part, are the "incidental" illustrations, although the one I...

  • I'll see about taking photos and sending them around. It might take a few days.... --Ken From: aloha-donblanding@^$1 on behalf of THOMAS MARKLE Sent: Tuesday, December 10, 2013 11:05 AM To: aloha-donblanding@^$2 Subject: Re: [aloha-donblanding] Huntington Library cache So you have the originals? Can email photos? I've rescued about 7 originals that are hanging on my museum (my...

  • Well, I can at least account for the full set of "incidental" artwork drawn by Blanding for "A Grand Time Living" (e.g. a drawing of a slice of watermelon). I received them from Mary Cox, poet-friend to both him and Edyth Hope Genee, shortly before her death. She also had a quantity of documents, such as minutes from their chapter of the Chapparel Poets, in her closet and she was...

  • TJ, Which California libraries do you mean? I have not heard anything about this sort of stricture against ordering microfiche. At the same time, do you mean microfiche or microfilm? Most filmed newspaper sets that I know of are preserved on microfilm. Some have now been digitized so that they can be accessed online--usually through a subscription of some sort, on the part of the...

  • I can speak to the matter of how the drawings in Blanding's books were prepared, as I have the full set of original incidental (ie not full-page) drawings for . These were ink drawings on stiff board, which were then photographed for preparation of metal printing plates. The original drawings were much bigger than the images that were printed in the book. The watermelon slice in...

  • I am not actually convinced that it would be best to have a single site for Blanding materials. Would a better appreciation of his work be achieved by one collection, which may draw in a limited selection of people to view it, or in a few or several collections, in which Blanding's place in the art and poetry circles of Hawaii, or California, or Florida, or Oklahoma could be...

  • The photo of Don Blanding feeding ducks is at the beginning of a section in Mary Cox's photo album with photos of the Carmel/Monterey area. It follows a section of photos from a trip to Mexico. As far as I can tell, there are no photos definitely from Oregon. As for Palm Springs, there are no original photos from there in Mary's album; only small postcard-type pictures. --Ken...

  • Do you, by any chance, remember where and when that estate sale was? Just before Mary Cox died, she asked me to be the executor of her will, which was hastily drawn up in the hospital. It was not well witnessed and, so, invalidated before I was able to make much headway in organizing her apartment full of stuff. I asked the Probate people to notify when the things came up for...
