Abstract:

The Mary Ellis papers span the years 1897 to 2003, from a newspaper published on the date of her birth to the obituaries following her death. The collection, consisting of correspondence and personal papers, production files, photographs, scrapbooks, clippings, and a few items of ephemera, documents the singer-actress' life and career in opera, theatre, film, and television, both in her native United States and in her adopted home of England. The correspondence series includes numerous letters, notes, cards, and telegrams from Ivor Novello, opera singer Geraldine Farrar, actor Romney Brent, actress Mary Morris, director Fritz Lang, theatre manager Hugh "Binkie" Beaumont, and illustrator Arthur Wragg. In addition, there is some professional correspondence from various stages of Ms. Ellis' career, including her time at the Metropolitan Opera. Highlights of her personal papers include a copy of the "Rhapsody in Blue" score personally inscribed by George Gershwin, a signed portrait of Ivor Novello, and a number of items relating to Novello's death. Production files include scripts and programs, along with a few pieces of sheet music.

In the photographs series, portraits and snapshots cover Ms. Ellis' lifespan with few gaps, and also encompass a number of friends and family members. The actress' theatre and Hollywood film credits are well represented by hundreds of black and white production stills. Scrapbooks provide excellent coverage of Ms. Ellis' time at the Metropolitan Opera, and of her largely American-based acting career through 1932. The bulk of the actress' career in England is not represented in the scrapbooks, although it is well documented in the clippings series. Finally, two printed photocollages among the collection's oversized materials demonstrate at a glance the breadth of the subject's life and career.
