Letter to Corinne Sawyer from Norma Millay, 1960

Contributed by Camden Public Library


Norma wrote to Corinne Sawyer to discuss the actress Dorothy Stickney's performance of Millay's material.

Norma also complains that the local newspaper is not interested in the critics' reviews of Stickney's work. "I doubt if the Camden Herald, with its club meetings to keep straight and all the local excitements to record, would give the New York critics' accounts of the Millay-Stickney triumph an interested glance."

Norma Millay (1893-1986) was the sister of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. She inherited Millay's intellectual property and her estate "Steepletop" in Austerlitz, NY upon the death of Edna in 1950. Corinne Sawyer was Millay's best friend from childhood and the librarian for the Camden Public Library.
