Typed letter signed: "Milt" in black ink, 1 page, 5½x8. New York City, New York, November 15, 1984. Drawn on official letter head of Crown Publishers Inc., New York. To "John Willis," in full: "In the interest of making it easier to produce both SCREEN WORLD and THEATRE WORLDS, is it possible for you to submit in a slightly different form the copy for the Biography section? You could send in copy from the previous volume, like you have been doings, eliminating certain people and updating others with their recent appearences [sic]. However, you would type all new entries double spaced on a separate sheet of paper, still keying the order by a green number in front of the name. This would look like ms pp 20 & 21 except you would have typed nos 1, 2, 3, 5, etc. on page 21. If this would conflict with your interest please let me know, but I would think this would be much easier for you in typing, numbering, and proofreading.". Milt Wackerow was a page and book designer for Crown publishing during the 1980's. He has been credited to participating in the development of Kovel's New Dictionary of Marks: Pottery and Porcelain, 1850 to the Present (1986, Crown Publishing). He is also listed in the credits for several children books, including I Want A Dog (1987), Alligator's Toothache (1977) and Matthew's Dream (1990). Crown Publishing Group, subsidiary of Random House--world's largest book publisher, was founded in 1933 by Bob Simon and Nat Wartels. Publishing works in every category from fan fiction to health and beauty, Crown Publishing Group is home to many successful authors including Deepak Chopra, Ann Coulter, Jillian Michaels and Jim Gaffigan among thousands. 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. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
