Catalogue Note

The front cover of the San Francisco Chronicle was inscribed to Williams in the year Barry Bonds hit his 500th home run (on the 17th of April against Terry Adams of the Los Angeles Dodgers). Bonds was a personal friend of Williams', and on the night the latter won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (Good Will Hunting, 1997), Bonds was one of the many individuals who left a message of congratulations for the actor at the Hotel Bel-Air.
