Typed Letter signed: "Helen Hayes", 1p, 5¾x5. No place, No year (penciled in unknown hand 1963) March 15. On her personal imprinted stationery. To Mr. Corliss, in full: "I haven't any idea of the number of the house in which I was born, but I do know it was Q Street. I attended the John Easton School in Cleveland Park and The Sacred Heart Academy on Park Road, NW. My debut in a dancing school entertainment was in the Belasco Theatre and my professional debut was at the Columbia Theatre on F Street which has since been torn down." Hayes (1900-1993) won the 1931-1932 Academy Award for Best Actress for the title role in The Sin of Madelon Claudet, her first film. After starring in Vanessa, Her Love Story in 1935 for M-G-M, Hayes returned to Broadway and enjoyed the greatest triumph of her stage career in the title role of Victoria Regina (1935-1938). She earned the sobriquet, First Lady of the American Stage, winning Tonys for Happy Birthday (1947), the first year the award was given, and for Time Remembered (1958). A frequent TV guest star from the 1950s to the 1980s, Hayes made occasional films, such as Anastasia (1956) and Airport (1970), winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the latter.
