Alice Herdan-Zuckmayer (1901-1991) was Carl's wife; they married in 1925. (Alice signs "Liccie," and Carl refers to her as "Jobs." Carl often signs as, and is referred to by his friends as "Zuck.") Alice had a daughter, Michaela, from a previous marriage; and Alice and Carl together had a daughter, Maria Winnetou, who was born in 1926. In that year Carl and Alice bought a house in Henndorf near Salzburg, and from 1934 on they lived there on a permanent basis; upon the Anschluss in 1938 the Zuckmayers fled Austria via Switzerland and emigrated to the U.S. in 1939. From around 1941 they lived on a farm in Vermont ("The Backwoodsfarm"). After 1946 they lived sometimes in Europe and sometimes in the U.S. and eventually settled in Switzerland. Carl and Alice were close friends of Alma and Franz since at least the 1930s.
