In Lincolniana circles, the famed director of the Department of Lincolniana at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, and author of numerous Lincoln studies. TLS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Fort Wayne, IN, 1959 March p. Addressed to noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93). Near fine. On letterhead of "The Lincoln National Life Foundation," which cites him as director, McMurtry discusses a Lincoln p.r. event coming up in that centennial era: "I was delighted to receive in yesterday's mail the Broadcast Music Incorporated's folder of the first seven broadcasts which they are featuring this Lincoln sesquicentennial year." Goes on about various Lincoln matters and signs off simply "Gerald" in black ink. Accompanied by one of these later BMI broadcasts authored by himself, "The World of Tom and Nancy Lincoln," a 6-page 8½" X 11" radio broadcast script published by music licensing giant Broadcast Music Inc. later this same year. (Their founder and president, Carl Haverlin, was a close friend of McMurtry and Gates and himself a serious Lincoln buff.) Stapled at upper left, as issued. Fine. N° de ref. de la librería 39148
