THREE AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED and Autographed Photographs

Charleston, WV: 1983. First edition. In September 1983, Albee spent a 2-week "Marshall Evans" residency at the University of Charleston, during which he lectured, taught seminars on writing, acting and directing, and directed two of his own plays, "The Sandbox" and "Counting the Ways." This small archive from that period contains a newspaper article from the local paper on Albee's arrival, an autograph note signed by Albee to Dr. William Plumley of the university ("Bill -- When did we schedule Evans & the student TV forum? Friday, I hope. If today, rearrange, as I am busy 'till 9 pm today. Regards in Christ, Edward."), and 5 x 7" black-and-white photos from the play rehearsals signed and dated by Albee on the verso (2 images, 6 photos in all: 3 copies of each, all signed and dated on verso by Albee). In addition, there are two chatty, full-page follow-up letters to Plumley, each on Albee's stationary and with original hand-addressed envelopes. October 9, 1983: "Dear Bill: Thanks for your nice letter. By all means: send along some poems . . ." December 11, 1983: "Dear Bill P: I'm delighted to learn that Huntington progresses. Doubtless they'll be in touch whenever clarity looms. I doubt [scratched out] Warhol (you see, I can't even bring myself to spell it!) would come to an opening out of NYC . . ." The autograph note is torn at the bottom and has a penciled notation from a colleague, one of the photos shows a little wear and another has light offset (from Albee's signature), else fine. TWO WEEKS IN CHARLESTON, WV.
