Son of Man(chester)

No father is just a name. This week's objet d'eBay is the autograph of writer William Manchester. Author of works on large figures and thoughts of history, Manchester was also the son of a soldier he idolized and father of children who were pledged to him. His son, musician John Manchester, has just published a short essay, "Building My Father's Coffin,"  which will be featured in a promised, upcoming memoir of life with a great man who wrote about great men.
