The Maria Palmer papers span the years 1922-1975 and encompass 6 linear feet. The collection relates to Palmer's stage and television career, notably "The Moon Is Down" and "Sincerely, Maria Palmer." Biographical material, clippings, contracts, and correspondence document her film and television career. The collection contains a surprising amount of material written by Palmer, including a number of scripts, ideas, and outlines for unrealized television productions; a write-up of her visit with Gregory Peck; and three journals (in German) from the 1920s.
Gift of Mrs. Elizabeth Palmer, 1984.
