YARBOROUGH-AUTOGRAPHED SPECIAL OBSERVER ISSUES For the Observer benefit dinner May 23, Ralph Yarborough, U.S. Senator from Texas, 1957-1971, autographed back copies of two issues of the Observer he had kept since 1964 because he regarded them as especially important historically. He authorized the Observer to sell them, for the Observer’s benefit, and we sold all but one of the ones we displayed, at $25 each. However, he had sent over the autographed April 17, 1964, issue, in two batches, and in the hurly-burly just before the event, we did not get the second batch on sale. After May 23, he located in his office another batch of the March 20, 1964, issue and signed them and sent them over to us. Senator Yarborough says that the April 17, 1964, issue, full of editorials and articles on his third campaign for the Senate, was instrumental, a turning point, in his 1964 victory later that year over George Bush. A story on page 9 of the March 20, 1964, Observer, told, with a sense of history, of Senator Yarborough’s endorsement of the 1964 Civil Rights bill. We offer our readers, for $25 each, the remaining 16 copies of the April issue and 10 of the March issue, autographed by Senator Yarborough.
