And Gene Shepard arranges for me to see Hammer Brothers on 57th St. to get a gallery representation.
Gene says the night before “Tomorrow is the try-out in the Big Leagues. It’s crowded at the top you either sell our or Hold out!” at dinner with Shel and Her Gardner.
I met with Victor the Director, Harry the bookkeeper and Armand the money man. Victor w/ carnation in his boutonniere.
Next day, they called and said I was accepted.
There are all dead today.
