Items stolen from car of George Harrison's sister at Clinton library site
Tuesday, 5 October, 2004
Pictures of former Beatle George Harrison were taken from his sister's car while she was on her way to donate the memorabilia to Clinton Presidential Library, she said on Tuesday.
Lou Harrison said that someone shattered a window of her car and stole a briefcase containing photos of her and her brother and the lyrics to a number of her brother's songs.
"(The items are) precious to me obviously because I don't have my brother in person any more," she told KTHV-TV of Little Rock.
Harrison had driven from her southern Illinois home to donate memorabilia to the downtown Little Rock library, which is scheduled to open November 18. She had taken most of the items to the library when she discovered the break-in.
Harrison asked Beatles fans to help her recover the pictures. "Maybe they could keep an eye on the internet," she said.
Harrison said that she decided to donate the items because she sees a connection between former President Bill Clinton and The Beatles.
"I feel that really, Clinton is the Beatle president," Harrison said. "There aren't enough things to leave for my grandchildren. So I thought maybe if I could house them at the Clinton Library, where they could be on display, that all the Beatle people could enjoy seeing them.
