Eric Sloane and Early American Life Magazine

“Away back in 1969, when we first researching EAS {Early American Society, eventual publisher of Early American Life magazine}, we wrote to Mr. Sloane. In three days we had an answer. That’s a “sign” because he gets 200 letters a day! He liked the idea of EAS, but was too busy to become a part of the staff, which was what we wanted.”
Though he turned down the offer, he was crafty enough to have them write an article on the newly opened Eric Sloane Museum!
