Summary
The Richard Astor Agency papers about Beatrice Lillie consist of clippings, correspondence, contracts and photographs and span the years 1954 to 1982. The collection is primarily from the 1960s and documents her professional life at that time, though there is some correspondence from 1970 to 1982. Of special note is the file of the television program THE PRUITTS OF SOUTHAMPTON in which she was scheduled to be a regular. This however, never was finalized. There are some photographs in the collection including publicity photographs taken at a charity fundraiser for the Jewish General Hospital in 1954.
