Charles Hooper: Writing Letters to Editors
While working on a magazine assignment in 1972, Ivan Doig conducted research about the life of an Idaho man named Charles Hooper, whose sole occupation appeared to be penning letters to editors from newspapers all around the country. In this folder, Doig collects everything from newspaper article clippings to obituaries of Mr. Hooper's relatives.
