A moving and heartbreaking archive of Sharon Tate?s childhood letters, holiday cards and adult correspondence with her grandmother form an emotional and fascinating facet of Heritage Auction Beverly Hills? Nov. 14 Signature? Music & Entertainment Memorabilia Auction.

 

 

 

The archive is being offered by Tate?s cousin, Kelley Denson, who was very young at the time of Tate?s untimely death, but became the Tate?s de facto archivist in the four-plus decades that have passed since the night of Aug. 8, 1969. This is the first time that these documents have been made public. They carry estimates ranging from $700 up to $1,500.

 

 

 

?Sharon?s cousin Kelley has held on to these documents for a long time and now wants to share them with the public,? said Kristen Painter, Manager of Music & Entertainment Auctions at Heritage. ?They reveal a very personal and loving side of Tate. She was always known more for her beauty or her love life. Now perhaps people will understand her better as the caring person her friends and family all loved very deeply.?

It would seem to me that the proper thing to do would be to donate all of the material to a non-profit

film archive; to sell at auction is just another exploitation of Sharon's memory, which makes her cousin no better than anybody else that's made money at Sharon's expense.
