Walter Hagen Personal Vintage 'World Tour' Photos - Golfing, Hunting, Pyramids, Safari, and more!


For the first time in 20 years up for auction from The Walter Hagen Collection is this grouping of Walter Hagen Personal Vintage 'World Tour' Photos - Golfing, Hunting, Pyramids, Safari, and more! The original consignor explains that he met Walter Hagen at the home of his father-in-law Carlton Plyler Sr. where Walter purchased a Brittany Spaniel from his Larue Kennels Company. The Plyler family then started caring for Hagen's dog during his extended, often extravagant vacations with his partner Doris Brandes. After Walter's passing in 1969 Doris moved to Cadillac, Michigan and was extended family of the Plylers spending holidays together. Hagen's once travel partner and companion passed away in 1989 and left her estate with her cousin Ruth. Well Ruth, knowing how close Shelby Plyler and her father had gotten to Doris Brandes, gave them a call and signed over the entire estate of Doris, and a lot of Walter's for that matter, to the Plylers.

Included in that estate was a large collection of candid original photos of Walter Hagen on those extravagant vacations Golfing, Hunting, Pyramids and on a Safari. These photos tell a story, looking at Hagen through a different lens quite literally. Many of the pictures were taken on the vacations of the sights that Hagen took in, as a remembrance, not always focused on Hagen. There are upwards of 400 total photos as a rough estimate. The original letter of authenticity written and signed by Shelby J. Plyler from 2000 when sold as part of THE WALTER HAGEN COLLECTION will come with these photos.
