Westport Autograph Expert Tips Off Israelis

Todays Washington Post reports that well-known Westport autograph dealer John Reznikoff tipped off Israeli authorities about some stolen documents from an Israeli archive housing the papers of Chaim Weizmann, the founder of modern Israel.

The newspaper said Reznikoff, who runs University Archives on Richmondville Avenue, became suspicious after he paid thousands of dollars for a half-dozen historic letters, including two 80-year-old handwritten notes from Albert Einstein to Weizmann.

He contacted the Weizmann archives about the material and the director confirmed that the letters were missing.
