TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, dated 3 August 1943 on his 909 Foster Avenue, Chicago, Illinois letterhead, to Donald A. Wollheim. In reply to a 18 June letter from Wollheim, Baird states: "Yes, I am the Edwin Baird who started WEIRD TALES and ran it for a year or two, when it was turned over to Farnsworth Wright. I started it along with DETECTIVE TALES. now known as REAL DETECTIVE." Baird (1886-1954) submits a story, "The Unpainted Picture" to the pulp TEN DETECTIVE ACES. The story does not appear to have been published. Fine. An uncommon autograph. (#162826).
