Martin Luther King, Jr. Signed Copy of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Program Where King Was Awarded the Prize — Possibly the Only One Extant

Martin Luther King, Jr. signed program for the 10 December 1964 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, signed by King during the reception held in his honor at the American Embassy in Oslo, Norway. King, at 35 the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, signs ”Martin Luther King” on the front cover of the program. Elected president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, an organization to provide new leadership for the burgeoning civil rights movement, King based his ideals for this organization on Christian principles and nonviolent methods of Mahatma Gandhi. As the symbolic leader of the movement to end racial segregation and discrimination through civil disobedience and other nonviolent means, he was singled out by the Norwegian Nobel Committee to receive the Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement. The card style program, in Norwegian, lists music to be performed, including a selection from Gershwin’s ”Porgy and Bess”, and the names of speakers, including King. Measures 5.5” x 7.5”. Light foxing, else near fine. Lot is accompanied by letters and press clippings from Paul Moody, who attended the ceremony and acquired the autograph from King. A moving tribute to the American hero, Martin Luther King. Sold for $13,125.
