Lawrence J. Epstein <epsteil@...>
Hi. My name is Larry Epstein. I'm the author of various books on Jewish
life including "The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in
America." Currently, I'm writing a book about Jewish immigrants on the
Lower East Side. The book will be published by Jossey-Bass/John Wiley &
Sons and co-published by the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Arthur
Kurzweil, the eminent writer and genealogist, is the editor of the book.
I am currently seeking material >from the 1880-1920 era, and I'm hoping that
some members of the Yiddish Theater and Vaudeville Research Group might
have pertinent photographs, theatrical posters, and other items.
Please let me know if you do have such material and are willing to allow it
to be published. Unfortunately, there is no budget to pay for these
I can be contacted at email@example.com, and I thank you.
