Information compiled by Steve Grimm

 

“The penciled signatures of Geronimo, written during the World’s Fair at St. Louis, are quaint relics of a great warrior whose small band of Apache braves held a whole American army at bay for several years. Geronimo drew his signature sideways, starting at the top G and coming down to the terminal O, so that the completed effort, requiring several minutes to print, looked like a fancy totem pole until turned to reveal his name.”
