Artist Lee Ver Duft 1910-1985 » IMG_1523

November 16, 2011

A letter to my dad, John Coster with Lee’s personal stamp at top. It says “Dear John, Just wanted to let you know that since my mastectomy (operation) am still activatingly(sp) producing work, work, works* With regards, as ever, your cousin, Leo*” I can’t read the postmark on the envelope for this letter, but it is after 1981; Lee died of a brain tumor in 1985; the brain tumor may have been metastatic breast cancer, an unusual but not unheard of disease in men.
