ROSEMARY DeCAMP
DeCamp responds to letter in 1984
Autograph Letter Signed: "Rosemary DeCamp", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, no year June 20. On letterhead bearing her imprinted signature at upper margin to "Dear Todd Axelrod". In full: "I don't know why I'm responding to your letter which included no self ad. envelope or postage - just Ego I suppose. I've only been to Las Vegas once where my husband Judge John Shidler said the best value was a pay toilet. But perhaps your historical society will change that. I just wonder how you got hold of George Washington - I doubt he'd do the paper work Good luck". DeCamp was married to John Ashton Shidler from 1941 until his death in 1998; the couple had four daughters. DeCamp's comment about George Washington was a total misconception. As the owner of a large estate, a military leader in both the French and Indian War and the American Revolution and a political figure, Washington wrote literally volumes of documents and letters (some 135,000 manuscripts were estimated to have existed at the time of his death). Some of Washington's writings were acquired by private collectors, such as Axelrod. Actress Rosemary DeCamp (1914-2001) debuted in radio dramas of the 1930s, moving into film roles in the 1940s and 1950s. Despite her youthful appearance, she was often cast as a mother, including the mother of George M. Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) and George Gershwin in Rhapsody in Blue (1945). DeCamp was featured in several TV sitcoms, including The Life of Riley (1949), Love That Bob (1955-1959) and That Girl (1966-1970), in which she played the mother of Marlo Thomas. Slightly creased. Fine condition.
