Abstract:

This collection consists of personal and professional files of the actress and producer Katharine Cornell and her husband, the director and producer Guthrie McClintic.

This collection includes material from as early as 1801 and as late and 1983, but the bulk of the material is from between 1921 and 1974. This collection includes business and personal correspondence to and from Katharine Cornell, Gertrude Macy, Nancy Hamilton and Guthrie McClintic, including correspondence with famous friends and colleagues, such as Brian Aherne, Ethel Barrymore, Constance Collier, Noel Coward, Edith Evans, Jose Ferrer, Lynn Fontanne, John Gielgud, Ruth Gordon, Helen Hayes, Vivien Leigh, Alfred Lunt, Marian Seldes, Laurette Taylor, Sybil Thorndike and Tennessee Williams. This collection also includes personal items, such as artwork, awards, honorary degrees, legal documents, personal business files, publicity materials and writings by and about Cornell and McClintic, including each of their autobiographies. This collection contains scripts and programs for plays, concerts, dance performances, events, exhibitions, musicals, operas, plays, tributes and vaudeville shows, in which Cornell and McClintic were not involved. The strength of this collection is the detailed documentation of the many productions which starred, were directed or produced by Cornell or McClintic.
