Scope and arrangement
The letters and ephemera consist of correspondence, program cast lists and photographs and document an ongoing relationship between Anne Seymour and Fannie Brewer. The materials span the years 1930 to 1933 during which time Ms. Brewer lived in Hingham, Massachusetts and Anne Seymour was both in touring productions and one of the Copley Players at the Copley Theatre in Boston.|||The letters are general and are primarily filled with thank yous for gifts, invitations to visit and dine, and news of Anne Seymour's career. There is consistent reference to a person named Edith, another actress, who is obviously close to Anne Seymour and known by Fannie Brewer but not identified further.
