NUEL (MELTON) EMMONS (1927-2002) American author and journalist who had once been jailed with and later befriended convicted murderer Charles Manson. He co-wrote "Manson in His Own Words". From the estate of Manson's biographer NUEL (MELTON) EMMONS (1927-2002) who first met Charles Manson when he was imprisoned for auto theft in 1956, and again under similar circumstances in 1960. After that, Mr. Emmons began a career as a photojournalist. In 1979, he contacted Manson and began the extensive interviews that resulted in Manson's autobiography "Manson in His Own Words". Huge lot of Emmons typed working typescripts, manuscripts, proposed film scripts, and some professional correspondence, literally thousands of pages, all associated with Charles Manson and what would ultimately become "Manson in His Own Words". The book was a huge commercial success as the public craved Manson's perspective on view on his upbringing, his "family", the infamous murders, and his life in prison. A very large grouping, not examined by us and sold as a lot.
