This American author, photographer, cinematographer and producer co-founded the Buffalo Bill Historical Center and the Whitney Museum of Western Art; as an explorer, he led a group that attempted to prove a land bridge once existed between Alaska and Siberia; his numerous books include "Beyond the Frozen Frontier" (1936) and many titles about cowboys, big game hunting and artists of the American West. TNS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New York, NY, 1940 October 4. Addressed to Arnold Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Near fine. On letterhead of "Courier Productions," a documentary film production company he founded, McCracken tells an admirer he "deeply appreciated your very pleasant remembrance of my birthday, as well as the nice things said about 'Beyond the Frozen Frontier'. Although I have no immediate plans for another book, I have been flirting with a couple of ideas which may materialize." (As indeed they did, with "The Biggest Bear on Earth" published in 1943 and several other titles released in the '40s.) Signed boldly in full. An exceptionally early example.
