About the Percy MacKaye Papers

Three letters written by Percy MacKaye. In the first letter MacKaye congratulates Stuart Pratt Sherman on one of his books and mentions his travels. The second letter, addressed to Jamie, asks for assistance with problems concerning access to his house in Shirley, Mass. In the third letter, written to Lester Roberts, MacKaye states that A Garland for Sylvia is the only work of his own he feels any “especial personal liking for.” The letter to Roberts is accompanied by an autograph inscription. Also included: Greetings from the Old Cabin, an inscribed imprint from the “Alumnae News of Sweet Briar College," and a program from MacKaye’s play “The Canterbury Pilgrims."
