— Bruce Robertson, The Institute of Cultural Affairs, Los Angeles CA

    I found an autographed credo Baby Get Behind Yourself And a Push coloring book.
    It’s from 1978 while I was in college!
    Made me smile!

    Hi Peggy!
    This is Madhumita, James’ widow. So good to hear from you. It will be interesting to have a photo of the book and autograph and also to share with my sister-in-law Judy (James’sister).
    I guess you met James in 1978. Let me know where since we didn’t meet until 1997!
    Warm regards,
