In 1968, or perhaps 1969, George Thompson, some six years after burning
his inventory to warm the Goudey building, answered a Massachusetts news ad
that led to his selling Goudey sheets, cards, photos, advertising pieces,
gum boxes and endless amounts of Goudey material for $500 to
Professor John Fawcett, Professor of Art at the University of Connecticut.
Fawcett was interested in Indian Gum material. After the sale, Fawcett kept
the Indian Gum material and sold the rest for $2,500. In a 1984 interview,
Fawcett estimated the value of the sold items to be $200,000.
