A Forgotten Drawing

I just found out that a long-forgotten drawing of mine is in the Yale University art museum collection. I was googling another artist, a friend who died ten years ago, and found this drawing along with his work.
This was just a student piece. One day the art teacher came to me when we were drawing in class, and asked, “Can I have this one?” It had no value to me and I said yes. He asked me to sign it and I said, “Why?” He said, “Because that’s what artists do.” He took the drawing.
