Washington DC, 18 May 1983. Letter. Two-page letter SIGNED as "Joe" on his personal stationery to journalist Richard Tobin. In part: "It did me good to hear from you again, and I am delighted you liked the FDR book. (An odd thing: the only really successful book I have ever written but turned out in a couple of months, in fact in an interval of the last lap of very much harder work on my big scholarly book on the history of art collecting [THE RARE ART TRADITIONS: THE HISTORY OF ART COLLECTING AND ITS LINKED PHENOMENA WHEREVER THESE HAVE APPEARED], which took eighteen years to complete!)." Alsop discusses the loss of both living and dead friends. "All my contemporary men friends in Washington are dead, and the biggest blow of all was the loss of my brother Stewart eight years ago." A revealing letter by an influential journalist and top insider in Washington from 1945 to the late 1960s, often in conjunction with his brother Stewart Alsop. Near Fine .
