Typed Letter Signed: "Daniel Blum", 1 page, 8½x11. New York City, 1946 January, 8. To "Dear Mr. Mattson", in full: "THEATER WORLD - 1944 - 45 Season is out! We hope you have seen and enjoyed it. We plan to include your biography in the second issue of THEATRE WORLD - 1945-46 Season, and we would appreciate your filling in the enclosed questionnaire and returning it to us in the stamped addressed envelope that we have also enclosed. In our first issue we used pictures of players who cooperated by sending us a photograph. It is our editorial policy to publish as many portraits as possible in our biographical section, and we would appreciate your submitting a photograph which we can use and retain for our permanent files. This will not obligate you financially in any way. Thank you for your cooperation. Cordially." Postscript "P.S. Here is your biography as we ran it in THEATRE WORLD - 1944-45. Please make any corrections or additions as necessary." Blum adds a handwritten note: "Birthday & birthplace/please!" Mattson adds handwritten note: "Scranton Penna./Why past tense! We're still running!" DANIEL BLUM founded Theatre World in 1945, serving as its chief editor until his death in 1964. Aided by Norman McDonald and John A. Willis (his successor as chief editor), Blum also conceived what would become the prestigious Theatre World Awards for promising new actors in the New York stage, Broadway and later off-Broadway as well. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. ERIC MATTSON performed in both the original 1945 Carousel (1945-1947) and its first revival in 1949. He has just one other Broadway performance, The Cellar and the Well, which ran for one week in December of 1950. Toned. Normal mailing folds. Small biography of Mattson affixed at lower margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
