John McClellan's doors could be yours

You never know what might turn up on eBay. Thanks to Gabe Holmstrom for alerting me to this piece of Arkansas history — doors to law offices that housed, among others, U.S. Sen John L. McClellan and Hamilton Moses, the former head of Arkansas Power and Light Company.

The doors were once in the Union Life Building and, according to the listing on eBay, are being sold as part of an estate sale. Available now with a starting bid of $9,995, but no bid has been made yet. They don't come with the clout McClellan once wielded. Sorry.

The teak doors were taken down when the building was remodeled and given to former Little Rock Mayor Haco Boyd. He later gave them to John Dotson, who kept them in his garage for about 40 years.
