Within the last six months, two patrons from New York have requested copies of Mary Louise Booth letters, the founding editor of Harper's Bazaar. The letters are from the William McPherson Papers. One of these letters was written by journalist and world traveler Thomas W. Knox. In it, he asks Booth if she received his article "Round the world in a curry dish" that he mailed to her.

Perhaps the interest of the two patrons stems from the magazine's 150th anniversary in 2017. Happy upcoming 150th anniversary, Harper's Bazaar!
