Sandburg papers go for $80,000

The Associated Press says An extensive and previously unknown collection of documents from author and poet Carl Sandburg sold for more than $80,000. The collection, which may shed new light on Sandburg, known for immortalizing Chicago as the \"city of the big shoulders,\" was almost never found. A Pennsylvania antiques dealer, Walt Brygier, stumbled upon it last year while disposing of boxes for a client. One fell apart, spilling the documents.
