Martin Luther King Archives
Für die Library of Congress zu teuer: "After years of trying to sell the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s archives to a library or university, the King family will instead put them up for auction on June 30, Sotheby's announced Thursday", berichten die NY Times, "Mrs. King had tried in vain to sell the papers, first to the Library of Congress for $20 million (...) The Library of Congress sale fell through when questions were raised by lawmakers about the price". Vgl. auch Western Star, Chicago Tribune, BBC und andere. Quelle: Topix.
