MALTIER C. HAGAN
On a letter sent on behalf of her friend John Willis, Hagan pencils a personal note in the lower margin, signed with "love." Signed twice!
Autograph note double signed: "You may have this, but I don't/ 'remember' sending it to you!/Love Maltier", in pencil and "Maltier C. Hagan", in blue ink, 1 page, 8½x11. No place, April 24, 1978. Maltier Chauncey Hagan (from Chattanooga, Tennessee) was an American writer, copy editor, and good friend and associate of Theatre World's John Willis. Married to big time New York lawyer Richard Hagan, Maltier was an essential component in the revising of Daniel Blum's and Willis' collaborative work, The Pictorial History of American Theatre 1860-1976 (as made evident in this letter). 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 Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased and toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
