Abstract:

The Helen Hayes papers primarily span the years 1905-1963 and consist of correspondence, the majority from friends and colleagues; speeches and writings, including drafts and handwritten index cards of speeches; clippings from her earliest days in theater and covering her work in film, television, and radio; programs for theatrical productions and awards ceremonies; awards and ephemera including her honorary degrees, appointments to committees, and citations for her charitable work; designs including costume designs for theatrical productions and artwork created by friends and colleagues; photographs, including both family photographs, candid shots and professional portraits from childhood, production stills and publicity from theater, film, and radio, and portraits by famous photographers; and scrapbooks, some dedicated to particular theatrical productions and others that cover all aspects of her career and life. In fact, the scrapbooks comprise fully half of the collection.

Correspondents include Brooks Atkinson, Stephen Vincent Benet, Carrie Chapman Catt, Mamie Eisenhower, Mary Martin, Paul Muni, Eleanor Roosevelt, Kim Stanley and Thorton Wilder. Of particular note is the correspondence from actor William Gillette and screenwriter and director Nunnally Johnson. The strength of this collection lies in its ability to illuminate all aspects of Hayes's public life by documenting not only her professional activities, but also the political, social, and charitable causes near to her heart. Hayes's life as a performing artist and public figure brought her into contact with influential figures in the arts, politics, and medicine, such as Maxwell Anderson, Presidents Eisenhower and Roosevelt, Anita Loos, Dr. Jonas Salk, and Alexander Woollcott. The collection provides a window into how Hayes's interest in the human condition manifested itself through the public realm of her art.
