| 1. ||Carl Sandburg at a press conference ||Carl Sandburg seated in a chair in Washington, D.C. and turned to face the camera. In the background is a fire in a fireplace. A typed caption above the photograph reads: "Poet Carl Sandburg is shown at a press conference 10/28 at which he said he was a beatnik long before most of the present-day bearded coffee-house types ever got out of diapers. Sandburg, 81, said he anticipated the beatniks for several years and told newsmen that some of his best poems -- among them 'Jazz Fantasia' -- are beatnik." photograph dated 28 October 1959.
