Biographical Note

No authenticated biographical information of Miss Wentz has been found.

[The Baltimore Directories of the first three decades of the twentieth century have listings for Annie Wentz of Jackson Place and Eutaw Street. Nothing else is known of her. She is probably related to Mary E. Wentz, a teacher, who is listed in the Directory at the same address. Another listing, for Annie J. Wentz of North Avenue, married to John McF. Wentz, a bank president, appears in the Baltimore Directories for the 1910s and 1920s. The two listings refer to different women, and it is unknown if they were related.]

Scope and Contents

The collection spans the years 1900-1938 and is formed by items with some references to theatrical and artistic events of the period. Included are three theatrical bills, an illustrated manuscript of a poem, and a bulletin (January 1938) of the National League of American Pen Women. Two of the programs are from events held in Baltimore: a travel talk by E. M. Newman (Edward Manuel Newman, 1870-1953) during the season, 1916-1917, and a performance by the Vagabond Players (undated). A program autographed by the actor, John Drew (1853-1927) from his performance in "Richard Carvel" is also included.

Provenance

The collection was transferred from the Peabody Music Library.
