Walter Willard Johnson (1897-1968), nicknamed Spud by his family, author, poet and sexual partner of poet Witter Bynner, authentic, autographed, glossy postcard with inscription from Mexico City to Carl Van Vechten in New York City. Signed "Spud," dated March 2, 1951. Johnson pens of his travels in Mexico with artist Georgia O'Keeffe.

Willard "Spud" Johnson was the writer and editor of The Laughing Horse, and was Bynner's secretary/companion before he was lured to Taos by Mabel Dodge Lujan.

Carl Van Vechten (June 17, 1880 – December 21, 1964), celebrated American writer and photographer, was the literary executor of Gertrude Stein and a key figure of the Harlem Renaissance movement. He captured iconic images of all the key members in the worlds of Art, Theater, Music, and Literature. Van Vechten viewed his photography as a hobby; he never took commissions, he never sold photographs. He would grant permission to publish them, but had strict requirements to do so. He was a prominent fixture in 20th century photography collections with his work being included in such institutions as The Library of Congress, The Museum of The City of New York and The Smithsonian Institution.

In good condition with original postage and markings; minor discolor and gloss cracking on the front side.
