On personal letterhead to "Dear Mr. [John]", in full: "I'm so pleased and flattered to be asked to be a presenter for the Theatre World Awards. I'm sorry I can not be there.

Actress JUNE LOCKHART (b. 1925) won a Tony in 1948 for Best Performance by a Newcomer for For Love Or Money. She played supporting roles in A films (The White Cliffs of Dover) and lead parts in B films (She Wolf of London) before becoming a TV star in Lassie (1958-1964), Lost in Space (1965-1968) and Petticoat Junction (1968-1970). Lockhart has continued to make guest appearances on TV in the new millennium, seen on series such as Grey's Anatomy and Cold Case. 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. 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 Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Fine condition.
