Lyricist Ira Gershwin’s (d.1983) songs are epic creations that set the standard for popular music standards. Teamed with brother George, the Gershwin’s dazzled the Broadway theater scene with a string on truly memorable hits in the 1920s-1930s which remain popular to this day. Presented is a vintage Ira Gershwin typed letter signed. Dated 2/27/61 this intriguing document detail’s Gershwin’s receipt of 1099 forms for royalty payments and investment plans in correspondence to addressee Mr. Samuel Berke. Several sections of the well-preserved letter are underlined in pencil and the world “Codicil” written at lower right has two lines drawn through it. Gershwin’s firm (“9-10”) quality signature appears boldly at bottom center as “Ira” with a diagonal underscore line. Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA.
