John Gielgud was born in London, England, on April 14, 1904. Since his first theatrical appearance in 1921 he has had a distinguished acting career on stage, in films, and on television. Between the 1950s and 1970s he had a significant directing career. He has written six autobiographical works.

Katharine ("Kit") Cornell was born in Germany on February 16, 1893. She became one of the leading stars of the American stage between the 1920s and 1950s. In 1921 she married Guthrie McClintic. Katharine Cornell died at her home on Martha's Vineyard on June 12, 1974.

Guthrie McClintic was born in Seattle in 1893. He began a distinguished career as a theater director and producer in 1921. Many of the productions he directed [such as The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1931)] featured his wife Katharine Cornell. McClintic died in 1961.

Nancy Hamilton was born in Pennsylvania on July 27, 1908. During the course of her long, versatile career she authored an award-winning documentary on the life of Helen Keller, wrote sketches and lyrics for several successful Broadway revues, and acted as assistant manager and understudy for The Barretts of Wimpole Street [European Theater of Operations production, 1944-1945]. Gielgud's correspondence to "Kit and Nancy" reveals that Katharine Cornell and Nancy Hamilton became close friends and neighbors after Guthrie McClintic's death in 1961. Miss Hamilton died in New York City on February 18, 1985.

From the guide to the John Gielgud correspondence to Katharine Cornell, Guthrie McClintic and Nancy Hamilton, 1958-1982, (The New York Public Library. Billy Rose Theatre Division.)

John Gielgud was born in South Kensington, London, 14 April 1904. He was educated at Westminster and trained at Lady Benson's Acting School and RADA, London. He worked under the tutelage of Lilian Bayliss with friend and fellow performer Laurence Olivier and other contemporaries of the National Theatre at the Old Vic, London.
