Lot 280: 1957 Louis Armstrong Letter ALS
Auction Date:12/19/2004 9:00 PM EST
Louis wrote this letter while on tour in London to his favorite lip salve maker in Germany. On back of the page is a printed verison of his "diet" plan, which he called "Lose Weight the Satchmo Way." Though Satchmo probably didn't know much about things like carbs, the eating plan is fairly devoid of them, making it a forerunner of the Atkins Diet. The jazz great's signature in green pen rates an 8/10. On plain paper, 24 x 30." EX.
