Signing in his nickname, "Horse," he pens a letter to Theatre World Editor John Willis, thanking Willis for a birthday greeting.
Autograph letter signed: "Horse" in black ink, 1 page, 7¼x10½. Knoxville, Tennessee, November 4, 1984. On personal letter head. To "Dear Jack" in full: "So your birthday greeting came, right on schedule. I did appreciate that, and it helped to soften the blow of the 70 years. I trust you also had your 68th maybe, sometime in October. We celebrate a little, every day, but we seldom get too boisterous. Thanks for the playbill clipping about 'The Wiz.' Please autograph a copy of Theatre World only and have it forwarded to me with the invoice. I want to put it in our Scottish Rite Library. We've been quite busy of late, as the 2 enclosed programs will indicate. But all these things help to keep us alive and well! Sincerely,". More research is required on this signer. 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, also furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Toned. Normal mailing folds. Ink note (unknown hand) at top margin. Paper clip imprint at top and lower margins. Otherwise, fine condition.
