"There was no one there I knew and I went outside onto the terrace and found Evan Shipman waiting."

New Hampshire-born Poet and artist Evan Shipman (1904-1957) was one of the few people with whom Hemingway maintained a lifelong friendship. They first met in 1924 and established a connection via a mutual appreciation of literature and horse-racing. Some of Evan Shipman's work was published under the title Free for All in 1935.
