Louis Szathmary


Describes three items owned by the article's author (a respected chef from Chicago) related to both Whitman and food: an engraving of what may be Whitman in a Civil War soup line, a previously known but lost letter from Whitman to his sister-in-law Louisa Orr Whitman, and a dinner menu from the "Complimentary Dinner given in honor of Whitman's 70th birthday"; includes "an authentic recipe for the main entree" at the dinner.
