That's a wonderful tribute to Mr Holbrook, and those are great photos. 
Anyone who has met him after a performance, or at either of the Twain 
Conferences he's attended, or at any other time will second your notions.

One correction, and one that worth some serious contemplation...  Sam 
Clemens was Mark Twain for less than 50 years (1863-1910) and Hal Holbrook 
has been Mark Twain for more than 60 years (1954-2014). In fact he was Mark 
Twain on stage some years before 1954, so it might be more like 65 years.

I pity all those people who lived between 1910 and 1954 and never got to see 
Mark Twain live on stage.

Thanks again for that link!
