Rennell Rodd - Letter to Oscar Wilde

  • RC0763
  • Pièce
  • 1882

The recipient of the letter, Oscar Wilde, wit and dramatist (1854-1900) was a contemporary of Rodd's at Oxford. In 1881 Rodd published a book of verse, Songs in the South. Wilde had this book republished in the United States in 1882, when he was visiting there, by J.M. Stoddart & Co., of Philadelphia. The title was changed to Rose Leaf and Apple Leaf and Wilde wrote an introduction, "L'Envoi". The letter makes no reference to the book but was written to Wilde in the United States.

Rodd, Rennell

Repertory theatre collection

  • RC0400
  • Collection
  • 1923-1927

The collection consists of three small scrapbooks, each titled “Milestones”. The collector wrote a table of contents in the front of each scrapbook, listing the dates of performance, the title of the play and the theatre where the performance took place. There is one letter from Fred Jacob to Mrs. Doolittle dated 14 Feb. 1924.

Jacob was the musical and dramatic critic for the Toronto Mail and Empire. He was also a playwright – his plays were collected and published as One Third of the Bill in1925. He died in 1928 at the age of 46 – his obituary in Saturday Night (43, 9 June, p. 6) was written by Hector Charlesworth. His letter concerns Mrs. Doolittle’s performance in Jacob’s play, “Autumn Blooming” performed by the Arts and Letter Club Players. Mrs. Doolittle may be Anne Carew, an English actress who settled in Toronto.

She appears in every play in this collection. This may be her collection or more likely, someone collected it for her. The scrapbooks contain newspaper clippings and tear-sheets from Saturday Night (mainly reviews), programmes, ticket stubs, autographs and photographs. Most of the items have been pasted into the scrapbooks but some remain loose. There is one photograph postcard of a troupe on stage with “Merry Makers” written on a drum in their midst.

An article on Vaughan Glaser and his career has been printed off the web by archival staff and is located with the collection.
