John Springer (1916-2001) was an American press representative covering more than forty Broadway productions beginning in 1965. After representing six productions during the 1960s, Springer formed Springer Associates, Inc., under which he represented a multitude of productions including M. Butterfly (1988-1990), The Seagull (1933), Shakespeare of My Father (1993-1994), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1995), and Inherit the Wind (1996).

Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008.

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 Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Normal mailing folds. Light surface creases. Corners lightly creased.
