Katharine Hepburn

From June 10th, 2009 thru October 10th you can peer into Katharine Hepburn’s files at the New York Public Library.

The Katharine Hepburn Papers at the Billy Rose Theatre Division of Lincoln Center, document Hepburn’s life and stage career from the late 1920′s thru the mid 1990′s.

What will you find? For starters, the script for “Coco”, hundreds of photos, sixty years of correspondence which includes fan mail, congratulatory notes and letters.

There are letters penned by Judy Garland, Charlton Heston, Richard Burton, George Cukor, Vivien Leigh, Peter O’Toole, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, John Gielgud, and Joan Crawford.

Suffice it to say there is a lot here to go thru.

The address is:
