Al Smith, Maurice Wertheim, Theresa Helburn, and others

.. Probably Dec 1924 at the cornerstone laying ceremony of a theatre, the new home for the New York Theatre Guild, paid for by the Guild's $500,000 bond issue without the aid of any rich "good fairies." The Guild's Board of Managers, responsible for its choice of plays and general policy, consisted of "a banker, a lawyer, an actress, an artist, a producer and a playwright"; that is, in the same order, Maurice Wertheim, Lawrence Langner, Helen Westley, Lee Simonson, Theresa Helburn, and Philip Moeller. Of these, Theresa Helburn, tireless and ubiquitous Executive Director and Mrs. Westley, an accomplished actress of vigorous originality, were the pair chiefly accountable for the birth and rise of the Guild. Finding the theatre "frankly commercial," the Guild has never posed as a society of pure artists. Time Magazine, 14 Dec 1924
