Part 2 (U.S. Mss 27AN, Audio 1052A): 1984 Additions, circa 1920, 1927, 1934-1979
Physical Description: 10.0 c.f. (39 archives boxes and 9 volumes) and 1 tape recording 
Scope and Content Note

Part 2 is designated the 1984 Additions because they were organized in the Archives in that year. They consist of papers received in the Archives in the 1970s. Most materials in the 1984 Additions date from the late 1960s and 1970s, although the bulk of Jean Kerr's letters to her parents cover the 1940s and 1950s. The additions are divided into six series. The three major series are papers of Jean Kerr, papers of Walter Kerr, and papers of both Jean and Walter Kerr. The fourth series contains papers of the Kerr children, the fifth those of Jean Kerr's parents, and the sixth consists of correspondence files from the Kerrs' agents, Brandt and Brandt.

The PAPERS OF JEAN KERR begin with correspondence files. The section “Miscellaneous Correspondence” includes many letters from actor Walter Slezak. Letters written by Mrs. Kerr to her parents, Kitty and Thomas Collins, provide detailed information on the early years of the Kerrs' marriage, their activities at Catholic University, their involvement with the Broadway stage, their association with prominent people in the theater world, and the raising of their children. The section “Theater” includes manuscripts of Mrs. Kerr's play Finishing Touches, as well as fan mail and correspondence concerning this and an earlier play, Mary, Mary. The section “Books” contains manuscripts from How I Got to be Perfect, Penny Candy, and Please Don't Eat the Daisies. Also included in this section is correspondence related to Mrs. Kerr's books. The section “Short Pieces” includes manuscripts and correspondence related to Jean Kerr's articles. The “Royalty Statements” are arranged alphabetically by the name of the work to which they pertain.

The PAPERS OF WALTER KERR start with correspondence files. These files are further categorized as follows: “Miscellaneous Correspondence” contains letters from a wide variety of correspondents, including prominent public personages and major figures of the theater world; “Correspondence with Specific Persons,” includes letters from film buff Spencer Berger, fellow columnist Joseph Cantinella, and Roderick Bladel, who wrote a dissertation analyzing Mr. Kerr's criticism; “Correspondence with Publishers, Organizations, and other Business Firms”; “Correspondence regarding Awards,” which concerns awards given to others, not to Mr. Kerr himself; and “Correspondence regarding Films,” which documents Mr. Kerr's long-time interest in motion pictures, but does not contain materials related specifically to his book on silent films, The Silent Clowns; those are found under that title in the section “Books,” described below.

The section “New York Times Materials” begins with first drafts of the pieces that eventually appeared in the paper. These are followed by correspondence and memos from the Times staff, then by correspondence concerning Mr. Kerr's columns. Included in this last category are letters from actors, playwrights, and directors whose work came under scrutiny in Mr. Kerr's pieces. The section “Theater” includes correspondence about Mr. Kerr's adaptation of The Birds and about his 1944 musical Sing Out Sweet Land. Here can be found a revised version of this musical. Correspondence concerning five of Mr. Kerr's books is included in the section “Books,” along with manuscripts from three of them -- God on the Gymnasium Floor, Journey to the Center of the Theater, and The Silent Clowns. Included in the section “Radio and Film” are scripts and transcripts for the cassette recordings made by Mr. Kerr in the early 1970s. The actual recordings are not in the collection. In the section “Lectures,” along with correspondence and notes for the presentations is a cassette recording of a lecture given by Walter Kerr at New York's Orange County Community College in March 1976. In this lecture, he discussed his own work and the state of the contemporary theater in the United States. Royalty statements for most of Mr. Kerr's works are arranged alphabetically by title.

The PAPERS OF BOTH JEAN AND WALTER KERR are divided into four sections. “Correspondence” contains letters to and from the Kerrs' relatives and friends, including many letters from actor Walter Slezak. “Theater” includes correspondence about the Kerrs' musical Goldilocks and a song score from Touch and Go. “Awards” includes correspondence and congratulations for the Laetare medal. Finally, “Miscellany” includes royalty statements for the collaborative works of Mr. and Mrs. Kerr. The Kerrs' scrapbooks document their multifarious activities from 1963 to 1977. They contain clippings, playbills, theater programs, and other ephemera.

PAPERS OF THE KERR CHILDREN contain, for the most part, letters written by the children to their parents and grandparents.

PAPERS OF KITTY AND THOMAS COLLINS, Mrs. Kerr's parents, include letters written by Mrs. Collins to her daughter Jean. They also contain letters written to the Collinses by their other children, Frank, Hugh, and Eileen, as well as correspondence with other relatives and friends.

The last series in the collection consists of FILES FROM BRANDT AND BRANDT, the Kerrs' agents since the 1950s. These files contain both ingoing and outgoing correspondence with the Kerrs themselves, and with people involved with the Kerrs' work. Most of the letters in this series are copies.

All materials in the additions are arranged chronologically within folders, unless otherwise specified. Incoming and outgoing letters are filed together, except in the correspondence of Jean Kerr with her parents. An incoming letter will often be attached to its reply, and both are filed according to the date of reply.
