(b.1934) Drifter whose "family" committed the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969. So far has eluded the gas chamber. Two photographs of Manson Family members Sandra Good and Lynette Fromme depicted as a pair.The first, a 3" x 3" color photograph was probably cut from a magazine and shows Good and Fromme side by side outside. Manson notes in the bottom blank margin: "...Blue & Red-15 years-Life--...prison at WVA...", with an additional note on verso: "...Alderson, West Va...". Manson named Sandra Good "Blue" because of her blue eyes, and named Fromme "Red" due to her red hair. Fine condition. The second photograph is a 3" x 3" color photograph, again cut and again depicting the two women back to back as a pair, this time dressed according to their nicknames. Manson has scrawled on verso: "...Lyn Red & Blue Sandra. Reds still in prison bees. Rolling-EZ", ("EZ" being a simplification of Manson's occasional signature "Easy Charlie Mac Manson"). Center crease, else very good. Sandra Good, who did not participate in the murders, nonetheless spent ten years in prison for threatening corporate executives on behalf of Manson's environmental stance, and then moved to California in 1985 to be closer to an imprisoned Manson. Lynette Fromme is currently serving a life sentence for a 1975 attempt to assassinate President Gerald Ford. With two transmittal envelopes from Manson in the Pelican Bay State Prison.
