Barlow Nelson’s Generosity

A few days after our interview, Barlow Nelson came by my office saying he had a gift for me. He brought for me a copy of Maribel Vinson’s 1940 book ‘Advanced Figure Skating’ and a screenprint of the illustration of him doing a spreadeagle for her 1960 book “The Fun of Figure Skating.” Wow! So nice! He also let me take a photo of Maribel’s inscription to him in his copy of the 1960 book.
