About this Item

Will close its own text block, but we downgrade to "good" since three of the four board corners are peeking through the binding cloth; the front blind-stamping is worn till it's barely legible, and both pastedowns are marked "Cinema Props" and rubber-stamped "This Is The Property of C.B.S. Television." Kate Crane Gartz, 1865-1949, daughter and heiress of steel and plumbing-supply magnate Richard Teller Crane of Chicago, was a philanthropist and dowager pacifist and socialist agitator in Southern California. Her lifelong interest in "social justice" sprang from her early work with Jane Addams, founder of Hull House, of which her father was a financial sponsor. She was one of the founders of the Pasadena Playhouse, the Pasadena Civil League, and the American Civil Liberties Union. The famous salons in her home drew such notables as Albert Einstein and Upton Sinclair. (She reportedly invested $5,000 in the attempt of Upton and Mary Sinclair to finance Sergei Einstein's aborted film project "Thunder Over Mexico.") Mrs. Gartz wrote and published several collections of verse as well as travel books and collections of letters in support of complete disarmament and socialist and civil-libertarian causes. Those collections of letters, including this one, were published by Upton Sinclair's wife, Mary Craig Sinclair, and are now generally found only in the reserve collections of a few university libraries. (This volume is undated -- the latest letters included date from 1930, making 1931 the consensus estimate of publication.) Gartz and her husband, Adolph Frederick Gartz (1861-1930) came to Pasadena following the tragic death of two young daughters in the 1903 Iroquois theater disaster in Chicago. She was survived by two other daughters. 130 pp. Reduced from $222. Bookseller Inventory # 004012
