My Mother met my father while she was studying theater at The Pasadena Playhouse....He was a teacher there. He also performed and directed plays there in the 1930's through the 1950's. She performed there. She also was under contract to Warner Bros. and did several films...Her maiden name Joan Wheeler...She met William Challee in a play that my Father directed..Come Back Little Sheba...I was 13 years old at the time...There was trouble in river city...She fell for William..My parents later divorced and William and My Mother started a successful art Gallery business together...My dad passed away when I was 17...My Mother and William married...And enjoyed there lives together...

Hello, David. I'm writing a play about The Group Theatre, which your step-father was a founding member. I'm wondering if he spoke to you about that period in the 30's much. Does an archive of his photos and papers from that period exist? Thank you.
