Abstract:

Papers of a well known writer of plays, motion pictures, and adaptations, consisting of scripts, revisions, clippings, photographs, scrapbooks, and playbills.

Among the represented plays are A Bell for Adano (1944), Mornings at Seven (1939), On Borrowed Time (1938), Point of No Return (1951), and The World of Suzie Wong (1958); among the motion pictures present are East of Eden (Warner Bros., 1955), Homecoming (MGM, 1948), Madame Curie (MGM, 1943), Mrs. Miniver (MGM, 1942), The Old Man and the Sea (Warner Bros., 1955), Sayonara (Warner Bros., 1957), South Pacific (Magna Theatre Corp., 1958), Wild River (20th Century-Fox, 1960), The Yearling (MGM, 1940), and The Young in Heart (UA, 1938). Relating to his writing techniques are a group of annotated novels which Osborn adapted for dramatic production.

One box contains business papers and correspondence. Although small in volume, there are exchanges with George Pierce Baker, Irving Berlin, Kermit Bloomgarden, Hume Cronyn, Russel Crouse, Maurice Evans, Edna Ferber, Sydney A. Franklin, Sir John Gielgud, Oscar Hammerstein II, Leland Hayward, Ben Hecht, Elia Kazan, Alfred A. Knopf, Joshua Logan, Fredric March, John P. Marquand, H.L. Mencken, Jo Mielziner, Victor Moore, Brock Pemberton, Cole Porter, Jerome Robbins, Richard Rodgers, Billy Rose, Dore Schary, David O. Selznick, James Stewart, Spencer Tracy, Louis Untermeyer, John van Druten, Dwight Deere Wiman, and Darryl F. Zanuck. Also part of the collection is a group of set designs by Jo Mielziner for Osborn's unsuccessful play Maiden Voyage (1957).
