Biography
Edmond Pauker, literary agent and play broker, was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1887 or 1888. He became associated with the theater after an early career as a professor of law and economics. Pauker came to the United States in 1922 and established an agency in New York City. During the 1920s and 1930s, much of Pauker's business came from his relationships with European colleagues. Early in his career, Pauker was the U.S. representative for a number of agencies in Germany, Hungary, and Austria. His business arrangements with Felix Bloch Erben, Dr. Alexander Marton, G. Marton Verlag, the Society of Authors and Playwrights of Hungary, and the International Copyright Bureau, Ltd., enabled him to arrange for the production and sale of rights to numerous plays by European authors, including Ferenc Molnár, Miklos Laszlo, and Melchior Lengyel. His American clients included Vicki Baum, Edward Chodorov, Joseph Fields, and Russell Janney, and he was also instrumental in arranging for the sale of European rights for works of a number of other American writers including S. N. Behrman, Theodore Dreiser, and Robert Sherwood. Pauker gave up his practice in 1959. He died on May 6, 1962.
